Schools Are for All Kids: School Site Implementation. Level II Training. Participants Manual.
Roger, Blair; And Others
This training manual for a 2-day workshop was developed from the perspective that a fully inclusive society will evolve only if there are schools which embrace all children, including those with disabilities. Each participating team first considers their school's current goals and progress made towards full inclusion, and then establishes goals and identifies strategies and resources to support continued movement towards full inclusion. Objectives in Section I of the training manual involve identifying and describing key components of integration, a rationale for school restructuring, the role of the school site integration task force, and the role of the integration facilitator, and team teaching and peer coaching strategies. Section II focuses on group skills, leadership and participatory management, decision making, conflict management, effective meetings, student placement, and systems change. Section III covers educational goals for students with severe disabilities, curriculum adaptation, student grouping strategies, cooperative learning strategies, and factors which facilitate integration. Section IV addresses the Individualized Education Program, functional assessment, team action plans, a common vision for integration, and establishment of an individual school site integration plan. The manual provides background information, self-evaluation questionnaires, group and individual learning activities, and note-taking guides. (Contains 18 references.) (JDD)
