LC Journal of Special Education


The purpose of this literature review is three-fold. First, the common definitions and practices associated with co-teaching will be briefly explored, in order to outline a framework, against which to examine empirical evidence. Secondly, I will briefly examine some of the experimental evidence that appears to provide support for the efficacy of this form of collaboration. Next, it will be beneficial to take a brief look at some of the qualitative evidence that appears to exist, supporting the benefits of co-teaching, in the development of effective teaching practices. Finally, I will attempt to piece together this information in a manner that will provide implications and perhaps a rationale for further action research.
