THIS CLASS IS OPEN TO SIOUX CITY EDUCATORS ONLY.

The ultimate goal of inclusion is to eliminate segregation and isolation, according to Richard Villa and Jacqueline Thousand, authors of Creating an Inclusive School, 2nd Edition (2005). By providing inclusive services to special education students, schools comply with federal laws and serve as models of a culture of acceptance and tolerance. Schools and teachers need strategies for how to implement the laws.

This 1-hour credit course provides valuable strategies for creating and working in an inclusive school environment. With this course, you’ll discover strategies for handling the logistics of the classroom environment, aids and supports, and curriculum modification. You’ll also learn the difference between accommodation and adaptation, and consider learning and teaching styles while developing differentiated activities that meet the array of student needs in your classroom. Finally, you’ll become informed about your state’s laws and mandates affecting how to monitor progress and measure achievement of all students in your inclusive classroom.
