Cultivating a Climate for Diversity

Cultivating a Climate for Diversity, Integration and Inclusion for All Students

Presented By: Toby Karten

Learn ways to foster disABILITY awareness and inclusive mindsets.

Workshop At A Glance:

Inclusion is no longer a philosophy or a buzzword, but a classroom reality. The focus of this session will be to embrace students’ strengths and potentials. Participants will learn ways to foster disABILITY awareness and inclusive mindsets in students, colleagues, and families. This includes activities that promote positive attitudes toward inclusion, creating opportunities for social and academic acceptance, teacher preparation, appropriate scaffolding, content-rich differentiated lessons, peer interactions, data documentation, reflections, and collaborative home and school support systems. The ultimate goal of inclusion classroom practices is to correlate individualized student profiles with heterogeneous classroom dynamics to yield societal dividends that embrace and honor not only the principles of inclusion, but most important the abilities of all learners.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Look beyond student labels
  • Foster positive inclusion attitudes in students, colleagues, and families
  • Determine effective strategies to differentiate instruction
  • Maximize successes for all students.
