The University of Delaware is exploring new approaches to the student teaching experience. Coteaching is a highly successful method of teacher preparation that provides a means for two teachers (novice and experienced) to share responsibilities for planning and teaching. In this model, instead of phasing the classroom teacher out of instruction so the pre-service teacher can “solo,” two adults work closely to deliver high quality instruction to the students. Tobin and Roth (2005) describe more opportunities for pupils to learn and opportunities for professional growth of the coteachers as a dual purpose of a coteaching model. Research has shown significant gains in student learning in cotaught classrooms when compared to student learning in traditional student teaching classrooms and experienced single teacher classrooms (St. Cloud University, 2010).
