Are you working with your inclusion teacher effectively? Do you both know the best way to incorporate this process in your 2nd – 8th grade classrooms.   Rick Welsh will be leading a training for co- teaching teams. There will be a high degree of input and participation from the co-teaching teams with minimal emphasis placed on lecture. The entire workshop is co-taught so teams are provided numerous opportunities to learn new strategies and compare and contrast their current practices with the models presented.  The training also relies heavily on multiple examples of actual instruction that have been successfully co-taught in inclusion classrooms across the country.  A field-tested method for grouping students which 1) naturally facilitates the inclusion process and 2) provides both co-teaching partners with more equitable roles, will be used to deliver instruction in math, language arts/English, social studies/history, and science. Participants will enjoy experiencing instruction from the point of view of their students.  They will also be encouraged to consider with their partners how the strategies presented throughout the workshop can be used in their classrooms.   Rick has presented at WRESA in the past and has been working with inclusion topics in North Carolina and across the country since 1992. This workshop is limited to 12 two-person teams. (Max of 24 participants each day) Both the regular-ed teacher and the inclusion teacher need to sign up to attend together. For more information, contact April Spencer at or 828.774.5681, ext. 20.  Contact Hours: 5
