Co-teaching in today's schools varies based on the model that schools choose and the teachers providing the support. This literature review examined the wide variety of co-teaching models and established that co-teaching is most effective when the co-teachers share a similar philosophy and are well prepared through efficient planning. It is also necessary for the classroom size to be small enough for teachers to be able to meet with students individually or in small groups. This research focused on how co-teachers view their arrangement and how it has been implemented in the schools in which they teach. Surveys were anonymously sent to teachers in two elementary school settings: one a small suburban school and the other a city school.
