Limited Capacity seats available

This session focuses on transforming teacher education to reflect the skills, competencies and dispositions necessary for teachers to assume the role of inclusion specialist. We will describe results from an emergent evaluation of learning experiences designed to develop teaching and advocacy skills leading to agentic behaviors whereby special educators transform segregated services to inclusive systems change. We seek to identify and explain the process and critical influences of teachers' growth toward inclusion. The TASH Conference theme of creativity is addressed in this presentation by sharing our creative and innovative methods for teachers and teacher preparation professionals to combat the barriers to inclusion that persist in U.S. Schools. Participants will leave with creative ideas for promoting and engaging in agentic action towards inclusive practices.
