Inclusion- C.J. Hooker with Mrs. Robinson

SOCIAL STUDIES

PERIOD 5 10:48-11:31

The most successful Inclusion classrooms include content area teachers as well as Special Education teachers engaging students in curriculum. Mrs. Robinson and I ensure that all student needs are being met through modifications of curriculum as well as IEP requirements.

According to New York State, the most successful inclusion classrooms follow the model below. This is the model that is being taught within our Social Studies classroom;

While both direct CT and integrated co-teaching services are provided in a student's general education class, and to the casual observer may appear the same, they differ in the manner and in some circumstances, in the extent to which, such supports are provided to the student.
 
Integrated co-teaching services means students are intentionally grouped together based on similarity of need for the purpose of receiving specially designed instruction in a general education class, usually daily for the identified class.  In this model, a general education teacher and a special education teacher share responsibility for the delivery of primary instruction, planning and evaluation for all students. 

Direct CT services are specially designed individual or group instruction recommended for an individual student with a disability in his or her general education class, the purpose being to adapt, as appropriate to the needs of the student, the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to support the student to successfully participate and progress in the general curriculum during regular instruction.  The focus of services provided by the CT is to an individual student with a disability.

Parents are a large part of what makes a child successful. There are many things that you can do to ensure your child's academic success:

- Check your child's nightly homework

-Be aware of long-term assignments
