The study would also guide teachers to use the techniques in dealing with children with different abilities. The Project would also help teachers to analyze the drawbacks of inclusive education. The study would also help us to find out the solutions of problems faced by teachers while adopting inclusive education. The copy of the study would be send to the authorities for their attention. So the study will be used as reference material for teachers as well as authorities while adopting inclusive education.
As a teacher, it is my responsibility to share information on the development of the child and have a clear and constant flow of dialogue with the family. This will enable both parties to deal with any issues that may arise within the family, school or community. It also my belief that parents should have an active part in their child’s learning and be able to lend a hand whenever necessary, and having open communication with them will allow this transparency and connection between home and school. The community is vital in ensuring that the facilities around the community and school is appropriate for the different children and families to live in and grow. A very good example of this successful collaboration is the Reggio Emilia approach in Italy.
Assessments: peer and self-assessment are crucial in providing opportunity to metacognitive thinking about education, in addition to assess own progression for meaningful productive feedback. 5. Established learning: teacher and student roles in the learning process should be established. Teachers need to create an environment where student can establish trust and mutual respect, as well as experience harmless constructive feedback. As defined by Bell & Cowie (2001), there are nine characteristics of formative assessment: responsiveness; source of evidence; tacit process; use of professional knowledge and experience; integral measures between teaching and learning; assessments by teacher and student; purpose; appropriateness of process; and predicaments.
Where should students with disabilities be educated? (p. 16 ) What are inclusive education programs, what are the barriers? What programs exist in your setting, what are your barriers? Students with disabilities should be in the classroom with the rest of their peers. They should receive support from their teachers, in this case it can be the regular classroom teacher, or a special education teacher that pulls in the classroom to provide support or does pulls out for a short amount of time.
In considering three ethical issues that may surface, we focused on ensuring parental consent if interviewing minor students, using trauma-informed care principles when gathering data, and increasing awareness of various levels of power between participants and researchers. Working within the school system, it will be crucial for family and guardians to be aware of any research being done that includes their children. A consent form will need to be created that explains what will be researched, how it may affect the students in the school and provide an opportunity for students to be excluded from the study. Discussing the need for this
It is vital to create a structured, nurturing and safe learning environment to foster success. The special education and general education classrooms, although separate, must function together and provide a rich learning environment that offers support to all students. Collaboration between the special education and general education teacher is essential. If a student is learning in both areas, it will be crucial for me, as the special education teacher to provide my expertise to the general education teacher so that she may best meet the needs of the special needs child. There are state and federal laws put into place to ensure that these students don’t fall through the cracks and get left behind.
• Culturally Appropriate Curriculum – A child’s home language and culture can play a significant role in the child’s cognitive and linguistic development. When parents share aspects of their child’s background, caregivers can incorporate family traditions into the child’s daily routine to help support the home-child care connection. • Language and Literacy Foundation - By educating parents and involving them in language-rich activities in the child care program; caregivers can have a lifelong impact on a child’s value of literacy. • Parents should keep in touch with caregivers- to feel free with both child and parents, also get to know about children developmental or the psychological issues, even parent can share their inabilities then care giver will mend the child’s heart
She also explains that teachers should always be “ready.” This display’s that a teacher should always be there to help each child and that a child should be able to approach her with any need that he has without feeling a resistance to her. This shows that Montessori wants what is best for kids, and she goes about this in a very passionate way. Similarly, Powell also wants what is best for children. Powell shows his passion for children as the states that “you’d be amazed at what you can do with them once you put them in that structure.” Powell uses the word “amazed” to describe how far
The family’s visions of a typical life for their children can come true. All parents want their children to be accepted by their peers, have friends and live “regular” lives. Inclusive settings can make this vision a reality for many children with disabilities. Children develop a positive understanding of themselves and others. When they attend classes that reflect the similarities and differences of people in the real world, they learn to appreciate diversity.
program we have to take into consideration those circumstances which helps and which destruct the teaching process. In accordance with Benczur (2003) while we were analyzing the Guidelines we had to realize that adaptation guidelines are needed to teach children with disability in inclusive settings successfully. These adaptation guidelines help the planning work of the P.E. teacher if there is a child with disability in his class. There we can find the difference between NCC and Guidelines because one of them is built upon the general planning and application of mainstream education while the Guidelines help the special planning.
