Training and courses on relevant issues – topics will include: • general information about the history and intent of special education law • special education identification and process • roles of general educators in accommodation and modification efforts • specific information about individual disabilities • instructional strategies conducive to heterogeneous classes • adaptation of materials for diverse needs and use of new technology • alternative forms of assessment and outcomes based measurement, • consultation/collaboration with experts, other teachers, parents, etc. 2.

organization of these criteria is based on Sobel and Vaughn’s (1999) staff development model
but incorporates ideas from throughout the research. A professional development policy must
encompass the following:
1. Training and courses on relevant issues – topics will include:
general information about the history and intent of special education law
special education identification and process
roles of general educators in accommodation and modification efforts
specific information about individual disabilities
instructional strategies conducive to heterogeneous classes
adaptation of materials for diverse needs and use of new technology
alternative forms of assessment and outcomes based measurement,
consultation/collaboration with experts, other teachers, parents, etc.
2. Visits and observations in model classrooms to see inclusion that works
3. Guided observations by coaches fluent in inclusive practices
4. Philosophy development – educating teachers on the background of inclusion
5. Shared program planning, implementation, and evaluation-encouraging teachers to be an
active and not passive participant in reform implementation
Section II: Outcomes and Methods
A. Participant Outcomes
Participants in this session will be able to:
identify common classroom practices that academically and socially marginalize
students with disabilities.
isolate the antecedents of these instances and generate alternate protocol for each
situation.
develop an outline for training teachers to create a classroom community that fully
recognizes the contributions of all children.
B. Methods
During this session we will take virtual visits to each of the classrooms involved in this study (a
multiple case study). Through video clips and transcribed data we will identify problematic
practices, discuss the inherent issues, and brainstorm alternate options. These options will
inform a “toolkit” of inclusive practices to be incorporated into methods classes and professional
development opportunities.
