A worldwide revolution is occurring in education of learners experiencing disabilities. The Special Education model is being replaced by Inclusive Education, education all learners together in the regular classrooms of community schools. Inclusive Education is not simply a new way to educate students who differ in ability, hearing, vision, behaviour, or body. It is based in sweeping change of how we regard people experiencing disability and their right to full participation in society. As with all change, Inclusive Education is not welcomed by everyone. Some governments, educational administrators, teachers, and parents prefer the Special Education approach, which regards some learners experiencing disability as so different that they cannot learn in the company of their typical peers. Under this view, they must be separated for their own good. However, increasing numbers of people in every nation see and argue for the social justice of bringing all learners together in school. They understand that difference is a reason to be included. This book presents snapshots of the struggle of education change as seven nations respond to this new human rights understanding of how education and disability should intersect. In various ways and at different levels, each is experiencing the tension and excitement, which always accompany change
The basics : supporting learners with intellectual challenge in regular classrooms : a resource for teachers by Gary Owen Bunch( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a resource for teachers who have the opportunity and the responsibility to work with students who have been labeled with intellectual challenges. The fundamental premise is that good teaching is good teaching--for all students. Secondly, this book believes that teachers are good professionals and have both the skills and the spirit to welcome and teach all learners. However, because of lags in teacher training and support, many teachers may fear the challenge of welcoming students who at first glance appear to require special training they have not had. This book walks through examples that reaffirm the capacity of all teachers to teach all students using their own capacities, the skills and enthusiasm of other students, and the untapped commitment and talents of students labeled intellectually challenged. As a teacher in a regular classroom you know that you will have students with diverse intellectual abilities and needs in your classroom. This manual is designed to give you, whether you teach kindergarten or Grade 12 Chemistry, some ideas on how you can respond to all your students as a professional and on a professional level. Certain basic teaching strategies work effectively across learners and ages and abilities. It is not as much a task of learning new teaching strategies, as it is a matter of using what you already know with adjustments here and there

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assessed dramatic changes in social, demographic, economic, technological, and other changes that have placed increasing pressure on Ontario educational systems in recent years in the light of educational and profile data on 15 to 18 year old learners, grades 10 to graduation. Suggested the need for a more responsive and flexible approach to classroom instruction, to the school as a community institution, and to the diversity of learning needs, backgrounds, and expectations. Volume one summarized changes in the province, including increased population, and changes in family forms and youth cultures. It reviewed Canadian and international literature on youth at risk and exceptional students with regard to learning styles, as well as social and psychological factors (bibliography included). Current program initiatives in Ontario schools were researched, and a unified vision of learning as a culture and diverse process was explored; options and strategies consistent with this vision were then considered. Volume two provided socio-demographic profiles of youth based on analyses of macro databases available, as well as micro or regional databases

Resistance and acceptance : educator attitudes to inclusion of students with disabilities by Gary Owen Bunch( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents findings of a Canadian national study of 1,492 regular classroom teachers, administrators, resource teachers, special class teachers, and university students on the inclusion of students with disabilities into general education classrooms. Three data sources were used in the research: an Educator Opinion Questionnaire, voluntary spontaneous written comments from the last page of the questionnaire, and individual, in-depth interviews. Results indicate that the educators' attitudes toward inclusion divided into two major areas. The first related to strong reservations about work load and the effect of inclusion on regular class teachers, adequacy of preservice and inservice professional development, and administrator support for teachers who were including special education students in their classrooms. The second area of concern centered on positive beliefs regarding inclusion and teacher ability. Generally, positive attitudes were held regarding professional ability to accept primary responsibility for included students, the ability of regular class teachers and resource teachers to work collaboratively, and the effect of inclusion on both regular and included students across social and academic domains, particularly the social. Implications of the findings are discussed, including the need for greater collaboration among government agencies, schools, and families. Appendices include the interview questions and a discussion of results. (Contains 63 references.) (CR)
