Classroom teachers and teacher candidates are partnering on a training model called "co-teaching," which allows the pair to share teaching duties. The teachers work as a team, and when one teacher is leading a lesson, the other is free to help students. Studies also have shown that students in co-teaching classrooms have higher test scores than their peers. Herald & Review (Decatur, Ill.)
