    Navigating co-teacher power balances can be tricky. This refreshing book provides a new way to experience meaningful co-teaching collaborations by illuminating the value of working independently and then reconnecting in order to strengthen relationships and outcomes. Author Elizabeth Stein introduces the Co-Teaching Power Zone Framework, which includes a process of valuable disconnected co-teaching opportunities as well as the use of cogenerative dialogues, to help you cultivate a relationship that flows into the classroom environment and into daily instructional decisions. Each chapter includes example scenarios and reflection questions to help you apply the ideas to your own setting. With this book’s realistic and helpful framework, you’ll be able to transform your co-teaching practices while co-creating a culture of belonging with one another and with every learner in the room.
