Boundless Learning Co-Teaching Professional Development

A Year-Long, Blended, Professional Development Package

The Arkansas Co-Teaching Project partners with Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Technology in Education (CTE) to offer two blended, comprehensive, year-long professional development packages to Arkansas schools.

For Co-Teachers

The Boundless Learning Co-Teaching Professional Learning for co-teachers and administrators is designed to build productive co-teaching partnerships in order to provide sufficient support to students with disabilities in the general education classroom. General and special educators will learn how to work together to build a co-teaching team in which each member is clear about the team’s mission, goals, and roles, and is able to effectively co-plan, co-instruct, and co-assess. Co-teaching partnerships will use instructional practices that support increased academic and behavioral outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities.

For Administrators (and Instructional Facilitators when applicable)

The Boundless Learning Co-Teaching Combined Package is designed to create a cadre of instructional facilitators capable of assisting schools in developing and sustaining an effective co-teaching program. Instructional Facilitators will gain the knowledge and skills to: 1) support co-teachers in transferring the information gained during their Boundless Learning Co-Teaching professional development activities into their co- taught classrooms, 2) conduct non-evaluative performance feedback checks to make certain that Boundless Learning Co-Teaching is implemented with fidelity, and 3) collaborate with the administrator to measure progress and set implementation improvement goals.
