Successful Inclusion of Students with Disabilities: Modifying Content Delivery and Materials in Inclusive Classrooms.
Gerent, Michele C.
This paper describes three classroom settings in which students with disabilities were successfully and fully included. In the first setting, a multi-age classroom has been established for first and second grade students with mild disabilities, students at-risk for academic failure, and typically developing students. A general education teacher, a reading specialist, and a special education teacher collaborate to teach the students. In the second setting, a fourth grade general education teacher and a special education teacher co-teach in an inclusive setting with 28 to 30 students who are typically developing, have mild disabilities, or are considered gifted and talented. In the third setting, a special education teacher and an instructional aide participate on two middle school teams to modify materials and provide additional pull-out support to fifth and sixth grade students with mild to moderate special needs. The importance of professional collaboration in all three settings is stressed. (DB)
