Inclusion Viewpoint Assignment by Mind Map: Inclusion Viewpoint Assignment

1. "Including a child with special needs in a general education setting does not mean that the child is placed in the general education classroom with no support services. For successful inclusion to take place, the student needs to receive the additional academic supports necessary to learn in the general classroom setting." (Taylor, 2005, pp. 281)                                                                                                                                           The teacher and the student should be provided with the support they need in order to be successful. The teacher should have the support of faculty and administration, such as the principal and special educator to help the student succeed within an inclusive classroom!

2. "One aspect of Vygotsky’s (1978) social constructivist theory states that our knowledge is shaped or constructed through the social influences and interactions within our environment." (Leatherman, 2007, pp. 595 )                                                                           Learning through your social environment is a big key to learning appropriate social boundaries and creating a community of learners in the classroom.

3. "Other investigations revealed that many teachers in general and special education have been ill-prepared to meet the needs of students with disabilities in inclusionary settings" (Conderman & Johnston, 2009, pp. 236)                                                                                                  It is very important for general and special education teachers to be prepared when working with students with disabilities or ELL. We need to have qualified training, and feel comfortable utilizing inclusion within the classroom in order for it to work properly.

4. "In order to make these accommodations in the classroom the teacher needs support from, and collaboration with, the other adults (therapists and special education teachers) who can make the inclusive classroom successful" (Leatherman, 2007, pp. 595)                                                                                                         It takes a village to raise a child, and it is very important to have the structure, support, and collaboration with others involved with the students inclusion. Communication is key!

5. "The inclusion movement is now advocating for children with the most severe forms of disabilities." (Palmer, et al, 2001, pp. 480)                                                                            Every range of disabilities matter, mild to severe! It is important to teach them appropriate behaviors and to make them feel a part of the community; not have them be isolated in the resource room.
