I am a special education teacher and I push my students into the classroom. By pushing students in, I need to push myself in too. I Want to be more than just a helper. This is a lesson plan I use to help plan and create a balance for lessons I teach with the classroom teacher. It is a way for me to be an equal during the lesson we are teaching if we are co-teaching. At the top of the lesson I have different models of teaching listed that if you are not familiar with, just ask or look them up. After you have pushed in and created a relationship with that teacher, you won't need to be so detailed in your lessons. If you feel like you don't have a voice in the lesson, try this lesson plan as a way to plan out who does what.
