Preparing Practicing Teachers To Teach In Inclusive Schools 

A graduate course developed for both general education and special education 
teachers provides information and hands-on experiences to help teachers enhance 
their skills for effectively instructing and managing all students in inclusive 
settings.  The course focuses on providing general information on best practices 
for instruction and collaboration between educators, updates on the laws regarding 
the education of all students in the least-restrictive environment, and 
opportunities for each class member to engage in a project that is centered on 
helping them to problem solve in their own schools. The course is co-taught by 
a special education professor and a general education professor to model the 
collaborative teaching process.
