Multi-Classroom Leadership in Special Education

Teachers with a record of high-growth student learning and leadership competencies, known as multi-classroom leaders (MCLs), teach part-time while leading small, collaborative teams of two to eight teachers in the same grade or subject. MCLs guide lesson planning, help teachers practice and prepare for instruction, coach and develop the team and individuals, and lead improvements based on data. This brief describes four examples of MCL teaching strategies to reach students who have disabilities—three examples in inclusive models and one example in self-contained special education classrooms.
