Transcript of Inclusion


inclusion hinders the learning of typical students
general education teachers are not prepared to teach a class with special education students
special education students learn better in smaller classrooms with fewer students
The oposition claims that...
general education teachers are not prepared to teach an inclusion classroom
-14% of children in the U.S. have some sort of special need
-A student survey was taken by both students with disabilities and regular education students who were involved with Inclusion classrooms.
-The results were favorable to Inclusion for each type of student. The disabled students stated being “focused and successful, academically and socially”

What Students Reported
-One student recorded on their survey that, “I work harder to learn when I am included with my regular education peers.”
-Students with Disabilities reported being more focused, successful both academically and socially, having better social and learning environments, having their learning skills developed, and had more motivation to learn and work while in an Inclusion classroom.
Self- confidence levels are increased when students are included in the general education classroom
Special education students learn academic and social skills through watching their general education peers
Least Restrictive Environment Principle
requires that students with disabilties be educated in settings as close to the regular ed. classroom as possible in which an appropriate program can be provided and the child can make satisfactory educational progress.
The meaning of Inclusion:
educating students
with disabilties in general
education classrooms
Inclusive classrooms and LRE's are not always the same...
requires that if a student is placed in a general education class then the teacher will get necessary support services they need to help the student with disabilities. Although, general education classroom teachers are expected to teach many different types of students they may not always know how to teach a student with a disability.
This is why in-service training for general education teachers in an important requirement of IDEA.
“We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”
-Robert Fulghum (20th century American author)

What is in-service training?
There is a lot of discussion about the inclusion of students in general education classrooms. We have found that many parents of students with disabilities strongly support inclusion but others have resisted it as well.
This is because many people believe that students with disabililties in a LRE may not receive the individualized instruction they need.
Training aimed to prepare teachers to teach studnets with a special education need.
"The in-service program aimed to increase participants' knowledge about special education, improve faculty and staff attitudes toward special education in the regular classroom, and lead participants in the development of a program manual for special education."
An example:
Teachers grades k-3 went through a training course that was 12 sessions long. Each were 45-minutes, they were held twice weekly for 6 weeks. It focused on screening procedures and assessment techniques, mental retardation, learning disabilities, emotional disturbance, speech and language disorders, hearing impairment, visual impairment, giftedness, mainstreaming, and a review of current research in special education.
-helps integrate students with disabilities in a classroom setting and a social setting

-helps students improve academic outcomes, friendships and positive social relationships for students with and without disabilities.

Promoting inclusion with
Classwide peer tutoring is a form of Cooperative learning...

-Can you come up with any other forms of Cooperative learning?

Cooperative learning example....
Be a
Fan of Inclusion
inclusion hinders the learning of typical students.
typical students in inclusion classes learn at the same pace as those in self-contained classes
typical students learn to have patience, compassion, and learn how to work with those of all ability levels
3 out of 5 parents prefer that their regular education student be placed in an inclusion setting
Sounds great, right?
