The purpose of this literature review is to identify and examine what inclusion delivery models are being implemented, what co-teaching looks like, how it is being implemented, what implications for practice are being suggested, and specifically what factors help to determine success of a co-teaching program. After reviewing this literature review, administrative and educational professionals may have a better understanding of what the current research suggests, what current practices are being implemented, and what factors will help to foster a successful co-teaching program. They can further use the information from the discussions and practice the implications that are suggested at the end of the literature review. Hopefully with this information, administrators may guide and evaluate their own co-teaching programs, train their staff, and structure the linking mechanisms that are necessary to support their co-teachers to ensure a successful co-teaching program.
