Co-Teaching Comprehension Strategies
in the General Education Classroom
By Holly Foarde
Due to both the Iowa Core Curriculum and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, special education students are receiving core reading instruction in the general education setting alongside their peers. One problem that has emerged, however, is that some students are unable to apply comprehension strategies to grade level texts because the texts are too complex for them. Co-teaching comprehension strategies with the general education teacher is one way to address this issue. This issue of NASET’s Classroom Management series, written by Holly Foarde, discusses the rationale for co-teaching comprehension strategies in the general education classroom and explains to how to implement co-teaching during reading core instruction time.
