This second edition of the bestseller highlights the benefits and challenges of co-teaching in ensuring that all students have access to highly qualified teachers, as well as that students with disabilities have access to the general education curriculum. Written by experts in the field, this new edition features new descriptive content of the four approaches to co-teaching, updated references throughout the text, expanded the coverage of Response to Intervention, and an added discussion on the role of support staff in co-teaching.

"The book takes co-teaching from concepts to practices, providing concrete examples at different grade levels." -- Dana B. Leonard, Exceptional Needs Specialist "The book's practical content is reader-friendly, clear, and concise, and provides relevant reading for educators interested in co-teaching." -- Marguerite Lawler-Rohner, Art Teacher
