Inclusion: Educating the Exceptional Child
History of Education
February 19, 2010
The inclusion classroom is a classroom that has a mixture of students with and without disabilities. I selected this topic because I was an inclusion teacher at the local head start. I am writing about this because while I was a teacher I learned that the students learn how to help one another and the non disabled students learn a lot about the disabled students. They learn how to assist the disabled student with things such as completing, washing their hands, and playing on the playground equipment. I want to in my paper show how the inclusion class can benefit both the disabled and the none disabled students. I also want to prove that Even though inclusion classrooms can be challenging for the teacher, teachers should treat the students just like the regular students, because they have rights by law not to be discriminated against and inclusion will help their social development.
It takes a lot of time and patience to teach a child that has a disability. I am going to be a teacher once I get my degree and I want know as much as I can about the inclusion classroom. I have taught in one before, but I feel that every teacher should have this experience, because law says that the students with disabilities have the same right to an education as a non disabled student. If a teacher doesn't know anything about an inclusion class then I feel that the disabled student will not get what they need from the teacher. I feel that all teachers should be certified in special education. I would not want my disabled child in a classroom with a teacher that has no experience working with disabled children or some type of training that would prepare him or her for my child's reactions toward the environment. Therefore, I think that all teachers should have some kind of training dealing with educating special education...
