Developing Educators for Inclusive Classrooms through a Rural School-University Partnership
Hoppey, David
Rural Special Education Quarterly, v35 n1 p13-22 Mar 2016
This narrative illustrates a school-university partnership's attempt to prepare inclusive educators for working in inclusive classrooms. This partnership, located in a rural school located in the southeastern United States, consisted of collaboration between a variety of stakeholders, including school- and university-based educators and district partners committed to preparing a context for preservice teacher and inservice teacher learning. The narrative shares how the partnership's initiatives assisted in developing preservice teachers as inclusive educators, enhanced inservice teachers' capacity to teach in inclusive classrooms, created preservice teacher interest in working in rural schools, and improved student outcomes.
