Inclusion Practice Priorities Instrument.
Montie, Jo; And Others
This instrument was developed to assist individuals or teams to review best practice indicators regarding the development of inclusive school communities and to establish priority targets for improvement. The instrument covers three areas: (1) school community issues, (2) team issues, and (3) classroom issues. For each area, there is a review sheet which gives examples of what "best practice" looks like and what it does not look like. Sample best practices include: the student uses the same restroom as same age peers, with the same level of privacy made available; the core team has implemented a workable method of ongoing communication to keep all team members communicating and aware of updates; and the student is assigned school jobs/responsibilities at the same frequency as classmates. Accompanying each review sheet is a worksheet which is used to structure a discussion of the best practice indicators. For each indicator, individuals are asked to consider whether they agree or disagree with the identification of that item as a best practice, determine the degree to which that practice is currently happening in the school community, and decide the level of priority to be given to improving upon that practice. For best practices identified as top priorities for improvement, action plan sheets are provided. (JDD)
