Student Responses
An inclusion class would be a class that would accept all students and everyone would strive to be their personal best.
A class that includes people who need more help and everyone can come.
A class where all students are included on a daily basis in projects. It would help their speech and teamwork skills.
Teacher's Identity
Daily Operations
Benefits of Co-Teaching
Best Practices Check List
An Inclusion Class is a year long class that has an extra teacher/assistant in the classroom. The first semester, students are refreshed and helped in understanding the subject. Second semester they are taught their grade level in that subject with an end of semester exam given in order for them to proceed to their next grade level.
Inclusion classes are set up to help students on different levels succeed. With teachers co-teaching, you are better able to accommodate the kids that have special needs. Teachers can help them succeed in a regular ed classroom with children who do not have disabilities. This helps them become better prepared for after graduation when there will no longer be accommodations made for them.
Co-Teaching Strategies
Each child should be educated in the classroom he or she would otherwise attend.

It is important to bring the support services to the child rather than moving the child to the services.
The law does require in §§ 300.114 through 300.120 that children with disabilities must be educated in the least restrictive environment.

Both the regular education teacher and special education teacher share teaching responsibilites in the classroom.
The Grunt Working SPED Teacher
The Non-Working SPED Teacher
The Controlling Teacher of Record
It means there are a bunch of kids that don’t have an IEP in a class with a few people who do.

To be in an inclusion class means to include us with a normal class.

An inclusion class is when you are with other people, not in a different class by yourself.
The General Education Classroom
Equal responsibilities
Mutual respect
Planning together
Common Planning Time
Inclusion takes on many definitions. Special education students should be included in the general education classroom for their core language, reading, and math classes. If a school has adequate staffing (SPED and regular education teachers) to co-teach, that would be an awesome environment, It would be ideal to have one teacher that is an expert in the core curriculum and another that is an expert in strategies and interventions. If this is not possible, we need to bring the support services to the student through other avenues.
Inclusion is the practice of placing special education students in the least restrictive environment. Inclusion exposes special education students to the regular curriculum. Inclusion gives special education students the chance to hear the types of answers and explanations that regular education students give on an everyday basis.
