C3 is implementing Content Specialization. What is Content Specialization (i.e. Platooning)? Content specialization (CTS) is an instructional structure that provides teachers with the opportunity to master teaching specific content areas rather than teaching all content areas. For instance, in a grade level, one teacher teaches reading, writing and spelling and the other teaches math, science, and social studies. As co-teachers, the two teachers at a grade level plan together and communicate frequently to ensure the needs of all children are met. At C3, CTS will begin in first grade and continue through fifth grade as we grow. Kindergarten will not participate in the CTS model.
