Collaborative teaching, or co-teaching, is a powerful way to support the learning of students with diverse learning needs. But how do you know when you’re doing it right? And if you’re not, what can you do about that? Authors Wendy W. Murawski and Wendy W. Lochner introduce the Collaborative Teaching Improvement Model of Excellence (CTIME), a continuous improvement model that embraces personalized professional learning to ensure that teachers meet the core competencies for co-teaching without burning out along the way. Incorporating a systematic application of collaborative groups, data analysis, microteaching, feedback, and collegial support, CTIME is the culmination of the best research in the field. As Murawski and Lochner walk you through their data-driven, no-fail model of co-teaching, you’ll learn about • The CTIME process and how it works. • Co-teaching core competencies measured schoolwide and at the classroom level. • Assessment of progress toward mastery. • Co-teaching action plans. • Professional learning communities and schoolwide improvement. • Co-teaching communities of practice and microteaching. • Co-teaching facilitation, feedback, and reflection. Offering a practical approach to achieving mastery of the co-teaching core competencies, this book provides dozens of strategies, resources, and templates that can be used by district-level administrators, principals, and co-teaching teams. If you’re ready to examine your co-teaching practices to make sure you’re achieving the best possible outcomes for your students, then Beyond Co-Teaching Basics is for you.

Much has been written about the cognitive and academic language needs of those learning English as a new language (be it a second language in the United States or other Englishspeaking countries or as a foreign language in all other parts of the world). Many guidebooks and professional development materials have been produced on teacher collaboration and coteaching for special education, inclusive classrooms. Similarly, much has been published about effective strategies teachers can use to offer more culturally and linguistically responsive instruction to their language learners. However, only a few resources are available to help general education teachers and ESL (Englishasasecondlanguage) specialists, or two Englishasaforeignlanguage (EFL) teachers (such as native and nonnative English speaking) teachers to collaborate effectively. With this volume, our goal is to offer an accessible resource, longawaited by educators whose individual instructional practice and/or institutional paradigm shifted to a more collaborative approach to language education. Through this collection of chapters, we closely examine ESL/EFL coteaching and other collaborative practices by (a) exploring the rationale for teacher collaboration to support ESL/EFL instruction, (b) presenting current, classroombased, practitioneroriented research studies and documentary accounts related to coteaching, coplanning, coassessing, curriculum alignment, teacher professional development, and additional collaborative practices, and (c) offering authentic teacher reflections and recommendations on collaboration and coteaching. These three major themes are woven together throughout the entire volume, designed as a reference to both novice and experienced teachers in their endeavors to provide effective integrated, collaborative instruction for EFL or ESL learners. We also intend to help preservice and inservice ESL/EFL teachers, teacher educators, professional developers, ESL/EFL program directors, and administrators to find answers to critical questions.
