Inclusive Practice Resources

The Wisconsin Education Association Council website has an interesting and thought-provoking article on Special Education Inclusion   http://www.weac.org/resource/june96/speced.htm

 

The article presents inclusion as a controversial concept in education and includes discussion of the questions:

Do we value all children equally?

What do we mean by “inclusion”?

Are there some children for whom “inclusion” is inappropriate?

 

This paper was written in 2s001 by Katie Schultz Stout, WEAC's Director of Instruction and Professional Development, and updated in 2007 by Joanne Huston, Teaching and Learning Consultant/ Legal Counsel and was posted March 15, 2007

The Inclusion Revolution
By Joy Rogers

http://www.pdkintl.org/research/rbulletins/resbul11.htm

This article was written back in 1993 but it still rings true today. States, school districts and individual schools all continue to be in different places when it comes to including children with disabilities. The article provides some definitions, presents some pros and cons of inclusion and describes what inclusion looks like. There is also a helpful inclusion checklist that can be filled out for your school.
