Each teacher takes half of the class and teaches the same material, possibly in slightly different ways (i.e. pictures vs. listening)
One teacher works with most of the class. The other teacher works with a smaller group of students, usually for remediation or enrichment.
There are three groups of students, two that are led by the teachers and one that has students working independently.
Teachers share leadership in the classroom and are equally engaged in the instructional activities. They switch off throughout the lesson and can use methods like role-play and modeling to show the students what they need to do.
One teach, one observe
One teacher leads the lesson and the other gathers data on students to understand them better and make instructional decisions.
One teach, one assist
One teacher leads the lesson and the other quietly assist the individual students that need help.
