I am a firm believer in the inclusion model as a way of integrating special education students with mainstream students that has benefits for both groups. However, for inclusion to work smoothly and effectively, the classroom and special education teacher need 3 to 4 common planning periods a week. During common times both teachers plan lessons, decide on which groups they’ll work with that week, and continually focus on student data that enables both teachers to plan interventions and scaffolds and discuss when to begin gradual release. If you are an inclusion teacher or would like your school to adopt that learning model, write about strategies and techniques that have made inclusion successful for students and co-teachers.


By learning in a group, the students can become more self-sufficient in finding solutions of the problems are given. In addition, they can learn to work in teams and do not give priority to the ego that they have. uk iptv box
