Pushing Back Against Push In: ESOL Teacher Resistance and the Complexities of CO-Teaching, by Greg McClure and Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor, University of Georgia.

The full study is no longer available for free. However, Jeanette Gordon feels this is an important study to read if doing co-teaching between ESL and general education instructors. "Data from the study suggest that coteaching is a complex social act influenced by hierarchical relations of power and status in the school setting. Performance-based focus groups reveal that language, race, and ethnicity also are implicated as important social factors in the coteaching enterprise. In the context of these demographic and instructional trends, this study offers timely insight into the challenges, complexities, and possibilities of coteaching, with clear implications for pedagogy and professional development."
