You may have noticed when you checked out our homepage a ticker highlighting a free virtual job fair for special education teachers, hosted by Education Week’s Top School Jobs.
As part of that job fair, I’m delighted to be hosting a webinar at 2 p.m. ET Jan. 26 with Elizabeth Stein, where she and I will talk about the ingredients that go into a successful co-teaching partnership. To register, sign up here. Closed-captioning is available, and if you cannot participate live, the chat will be archived and transcribed for later viewing.
You may already know Elizabeth Stein from articles on co-teaching and universal design for learning that she has written for Education Week Teacher. Stein, who has a National Board Certification in Literacy, is currently a special education/universal design for learning instructional coach and a new-teacher mentor at the Smithtown Central School District in New York. She is also the author of Elevating Co-Teaching through UDL and Comprehension Lessons for RTI: Grades 3-5.
Stein already generously offers her advice to new and seasoned teachers through the blog Two Teachers in the Room and she’s also the creator of the popular Twitter chat that can be found at #coteachat, which takes place at 8 p.m. ET on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month. Knowing how popular the co-teaching topic is, I’m happy to have someone of her expertise fielding questions from educators.
I’m looking forward having you join us!
