Learning Together...Stories and Strategies.
Vandercook, Terri, Ed.; And Others
This monograph presents a collection of experiences and insights about building inclusive school communities in which all members, adults and children, learn and grow together. The monograph addresses the challenging and hopeful venture of welcoming all children into their neighborhood schools, regardless of their abilities and interests. The more than 60 brief anecdotes reflect how children of today are being afforded opportunities to accept, value, and appreciate diversity and to see similarities in all people. The experiences describe successful instances in the inclusion process and provide examples of effective educational practices. (JDD)
