Facilitating Co-Teaching for Literacy in General Education Classrooms through Technology: Focus on Students with Learning Disabilities
RWQOLD Volume 22, Number 3, ISSN 1057-3569
In this article, studies on co-teaching for students with learning disabilities are briefly reviewed. Next, the factors affecting responsible co-teaching for students with learning disabilities are discussed, including how technology (i.e., computer-assisted collaborative strategic reading) might assist in promoting success while overcoming barriers to effective co-teaching. Specifically, four factors are reviewed with reference to technology application as a means of facilitating responsible co-teaching: preplanning and organizing, establishing goals and outcomes, linking special and general education, and ongoing evaluation.
