Inclusiveness

Lisa Friedman once said, “Inclusion is a mindset. It is not a way of thinking. It is not a program that we run or a classroom in our school or a favor we do for someone. Inclusion is who we are. It is who we must strive to be.”   As we reflect on our own teaching experiences, what opportunities do we provide for everyone to feel included?

Food for Thought:

  • Create a physical environment that promotes cooperative learning
  • Increased amounts of rigor and student engagement
  • Flexible seating and/or opportunities to move
  • Create a school and/or classroom culture that promotes independence thinkers
