Are you trying to grow the inclusive schooling model in your community? Do you feel like you have tried everything to create change in your school? Do you want to “sharpen the saw” and become reenergized as an advocate or educator? If you answered “yes” to any one of these questions, then this is the book for you!
Don’t We Already Do Inclusion? is not only filled with ideas for teaching diverse learners, but is also focused on change itself and, more specifically, on how those concerned about inclusion can create change even when they are not in positions of power. The activities, examples, and illustrations are designed to help participants refine their vision and their skills when it comes to inclusion. The ideas are free or low cost, and many can be achieved by any number of stakeholders—including students and families. Learn tried and true techniques, as well as out-of-the box solutions such as involving traditional and social media, “shrinking” the change, phoning for help, advertising, and writing your way to progress.
