Successful co-teachers also recognize the need to create opportunities for the atypical learner to access the curriculum in an inclusive setting. Co-teachers need to have flexibility, a strong work ethic, and the ability to share responsibilities with confidence.

Many lesson-planning templates are available; hence, as colleagues meet to coplan lessons, they should first dialogue about the lesson-planning models they use and select one that is mutually agreeable. Figure 3.1 is an example of a template that teachers have used in their collaborative work. In many instances after teachers coplan lessons, they individually teach the lessons in their classrooms and collect samples of student work. Then they meet, compare the student work generated by the lesson, and dialogue about how they might tweak the lesson.
