Using Invitational Learning to Address Writing Competence for Middle School Students with Disabilities
Ornelles, Cecily; Black, Rhonda S.
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v18 p26-36 2012
This study describes the process of creating an Invitational Learning environment to improve the writing competence of middle school students in two special education classes. Teacher-student interactions were coded according to Purkey and Novak's (1996) Intentionality/Invitation Quadrant with levels corresponding to intentionally disinviting, unintentionally disinviting, unintentionally inviting, and intentionally inviting. After only two training sessions, teacher-student interactions were markedly more inviting. (Contains 4 tables and 4 figures.)
