Pairs Workshops held in TERI Partner Network Professional Development School (PDS) Sites: Early September 2011

Co-teaching specialists in the network teamed up to provide Pairs workshops to all cooperating teachers, principals, and teacher candidates working together this Fall using the co-teaching model. All elementary education teacher candidates at TERI PDS and Clinical Cluster Sites (CCS) are engaged in a "year long" placement and have been in the schools since late August as co-teachers with their cooperating teachers. All co-teaching pairs met with specialists at this workshop to discuss the co-teaching strategies, building relationships, communication, and collaboration while planning to co-teach. Here are a few photos from local site visits:
