Choice is the friend of inclusion. Now, more than ever we need to feel ready and inspired to teach all of our students, Pre-K through 12th grade. It's all about creating the most inclusive educational system possible where every person (big and small) not only survives, but thrives.
In this podcast (an audio recording of a webinar with inclusive education experts Drs. Julie Causton and Kristie Pretti-Frontczak), Causton and Pretti-Frontczak share the “why's” behind inclusion and share some of their favorite (and most effective) strategies for differentiating and supporting ALL learners. To build truly inclusive schools, we need to recognize that embracing diversity means embracing different abilities. Moving from a medical model of disability, centered around deficit and pathology, toward one that embraces all the different ways kids learn benefits all kids, not just those with disabilities, and benefits the entire academic culture of a classroom overall. Listen to this webinar to think about a new type of IQ: not the intelligence quotient of individual children, but the “inclusion quotient” of a school.
