Student diversity is one of the main characteristics that defines today's classroom. This course helps educators build the capacity to understand, honor and support the ever-increasing diversity of educational needs within classrooms. Recommendations are provided to enable teachers to augment their existing practices by infusing inclusive practices into existing content and curricula. Roles and responsibilities of general and special educators are explored to help facilitate collaboration in serving the needs of students and to make meaningful contributions to the identification, evaluation, re-evaluation, teaching and monitoring of progress of all students. Participants identify potential barriers to learning across curriculum areas in the general education classroom and identify strategies and services to eliminate those barriers.
