A Cross Categorical Approach to Service Delivery: Promoting Successful Inclusion through Teacher Education
Rao, Shaila
International Journal of Whole Schooling, v5 n1 p25-43 Mar 2009
Schools in the United States and schools across majority of countries around the world today face two critical issues: "Inclusion of students with disabilities in general education classrooms" and a contributing factor to success of this inclusion, teachers prepared to use best practices. "Best practices" in education are approaches to teaching, programs used with students, classroom procedures followed, teaching strategies used, and methods incorporated that may have consistently produced good reliable results and reported as such in literature. This paper describes best practices used in university setting to prepare teachers to use these best practices and follow a cross-categorical service delivery approach in general education classrooms with students with special needs, in resource room setting, and/or self-contained special education classrooms. (Contains 5 figures.)
