Schrag, Judy A.
This document reviews information and research findings regarding various options to facilitate the full inclusion of students with disabilities. Principles of inclusive schools introduce the document. Three categories of strategies and interventions for working with students with disabilities are included: (1) program strategies, (2) classroom grouping schemes, and (3) teaching methods and procedures. The following program strategies are addressed: educational support teams, consultation, curriculum based assessment, the Adaptive Learning Environments Model, and Project RIDE (Great Falls, Montana). Four options for classroom grouping schemes considered are: peer and cross-age tutoring, cooperative learning, ability grouping, and reducing class size. Specific teaching methods and practices presented are: reciprocal teaching, social skills training, study skills training, instructional reinforcement, learning styles, mastery learning, and effective teaching strategies. Within each category and subsumed intervention, a common format is used which includes a definition of the intervention, a summary of the major research findings, details of some specific research, and consideration of the quality of the research. References are provided for each intervention. (DB)
