Creating an Inclusive Classroom

February 17th, 2021

Starts at 1:00 pm, ends at 2:00 pm

Inclusion in general education classrooms is a civil right. Every student has this right; however, we often breach it with students with disabilities based on outdated notions of what we as adults can and should do to effectively support them. Forty years of research has shown that this is not an effective strategy, yet we continue to place students in more restrictive placements.

In this webinar, we will touch on what inclusive education instructional practices are and how they have been implemented in schools. Inclusive education is a group of practices that structure a classroom and lessons for all students to learn together. An inclusive classroom is a learning environment in which care is taken to ensure that all learners are supported, engaged, and accepted. The instructional practices we implement to include all learners include Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Differentiation, and Modifications and Accommodations.
