Co-Teaching Lesson Plans - Science & Social Studies - High School


VDOE Excellence in Co-Teaching Initiative


This webshop shares lesson plans adapted by real co-teachers of Virginia. Most began with an Enhanced Scope and Sequence (ESS) Sample Lesson Plan designed to be taught by one teacher, then offer suggestions as to how co-teachers can effectively utilize the expertise of each to enhance that lesson in a co-taught classroom. ESS Sample Lesson Plans were created by a select group of Virginia teachers to align instruction with the expectations of the Virginia SOL and were vetted by VDOE content specialists. (See the links below and in Webshop 10: Co-Teaching Resources). While Virginia teachers are to use lesson plan formats that are required by their school division, the template for the posted lesson plans is provided.
