Teaching in tandem
from Language Magazine (commentary)
Myryame Montrose Elder, a contributor for Language Magazine, writes: "The current emphasis in ESL instruction is on a "push-in" rather than "pull-out" method of intervention: ESL teachers collaborate with a content-area teacher and co-teach in the content classroom to ensure ELLs can master vocabulary and concepts. Co-teaching is a great model, and I have had successful co-teaching experiences at the high school level in biology, algebra, and English language arts. However, my current position at a middle school, where I teach two different subjects (French and English as a second language) to three different grade levels, does not allow time to co-teach in a content classroom or to attend PLC meetings with the various grade levels."
