Teamwork at the heart of next week’s events

October 10, 2013 by  

A workshop on co-teaching will demonstrate how teachers teaming up with support staff can be more effective in the classroom.

The preferred teams will consist of a general education teacher combined with either an ELL/ESL bilingual educator, special education teacher, reading or math consultant, or other support professionals.

The workshop will be led by Virginia Babcock and Anthony Brisson. Topics will cover how co-teaching enriches the learning experience for students and meets the needs of those with and without disabilities.

The workshop will begin at 9:00 am on Wednesday, October 16 at the Serc Classroom, 25 Industrial Park Road, in Middletown, just half an hour from East Haven.

Finally, it’s back to business as an ethics meeting for engineers is held at 5:30 pm on Thursday, October 17, at the Holiday Inn, 201 Washington Avenue in North Haven.
