Research Structure The Integration Notebook is divided into 7 sessions and is a flexible tool which can be used by teachers at different moments throughout the school year both to observe integration (not only students and other teachers but also families) but also and in order to evaluate improvements.
The Integration Notebook is a tool within a training path: the path must be followed and supervised. This means that the group of teachers (max 20 per group) implementing the notebook will periodically meet with a tutor. They exchange observations, share problems and ideas. This feeds the Action Research. How to observe?

Motivation The Notebook supports teachers to observe and facilitate integration in their classrooms.
It supports new-arrived students in their welcome phase and highlights their past history and skills as an added value in the class and school.
It enables teachers to record changes, difficulties, achievements related to integration.
It draws teacher’s attention not only on student's learning achievements but also on their other skills and attributes.
