A coteacher huddle occurs when two or more teachers use short, focused meetings either before, during, or after a lesson, to discuss shifts or adaptations to coplanned instruction. In a recent study Soslau, Kotch-Jester, Scantlebury, and Gleason (2018) determined how teacher candidates’ participation in huddles changed over time. Tracking how often teacher candidates initiated a huddle, what meaning the candidate made of the huddle, and what the candidate reported learning as a result of the huddle. The study showed how huddling, which is a key feature of coteaching, provides a unique learning opportunity for teacher candidates to develop adaptive teaching expertise.
