'A comprehensive resource for co-teaching teams and their administrators! It is full of ready-to-use, teacher-friendly forms, checklists, and charts. The co-teaching lesson plan forms are phenomenal! The number of practical ideas included is astounding' - Michele S. Dalton, School Psychologist, Poudre School District, Ft. Collins, CO

'A tremendous contribution to the field. This text is for anyone who is thinking about being in, or who is already in, the challenging yet potentially rewarding co-teaching relationship' - Mimi Rosenberg, Graduate Faculty, Bank Street College of Education

To better serve students with disabilities in inclusive primary-level classrooms, schools are partnering general education teachers with special service providers to form committed co-teaching relationships. Using the metaphor of marriage, this lighthearted, highly practical, and teacher-friendly resource from the author of Collaborative Teaching in Secondary Schools provides readers with the tools to successfully set up, conduct, and successfully maintain co-teaching partnerships in any learning environment.

Based on the author's extensive experience, this book blends solid educational research and literature with lighthearted humour to help readers nurture co-teaching partnerships through the stages of planning, co-instructing, and co-assessing. Divided into four relationship stages, each section offers:

- Case studies and scenarios of co-teachers in action

- Field-tested instructional and behavioural strategies with authentic examples

- Self-assessments to determine teachers' readiness to proceed to the next step in the co-teaching relationship

- Information on the role of the administrator and how to communicate with parents

- Numerous reproducibles, helpful Web sites, and a list of teacher resources

Collaborative Teaching in Elementary Schools is an easy-to-access, one-stop guide for schools getting started with co-teaching or looking to refine their existing programmes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Based on both up-to-date research and a wealth of practical experience, Murawski's easy-to-use text is a tremendous contribution to the field, as more and more elementary school teachers are entering into a collaborative partnership that demands careful and playful approaches. This text is for anyone who is thinking about being in, or who is already in, the challenging yet potentially rewarding co-teaching relationship. Murawski's keen insights about the day-to-day realities of teachers working together in classrooms are invaluable." -- Mimi Rosenberg, Graduate Faculty
"A comprehensive resource for co-teaching teams and their administrators! It is full of ready-to-use, teacher-friendly forms, checklists, and charts. The co-teaching lesson plan forms are phenomenal! The EZ Reference pages provide detailed information in an organized and meaningful way. The number of practical ideas included is astounding." -- Michele S. Dalton, School Psychologist
"I particularly love the analogy of a marriage and relationship that is woven throughout the book. While it is cute, it also works as a metaphor for co-teaching at all levels. The possibly unfamiliar process of getting to know each other, deciding to co-teach, making it work, and possibly having to end the co-teaching relationship all become easier to understand using the metaphors of dating, engagement, and counseling." -- Claire E. Hughes, Associate Professor of Special Education
