Inclusion Classes -Reply

Mary Ann Matras recently expressed concerns about how a class with a
large number of "inclusion" students had been taught. The lesson
she described was seemingly devoted to a teacher tell and then
student parrot format.

My experiences with special education are limited. However, it seems
that developing procedual knowledge and using a behavioralist approach
is the norm among the situations with which I am familiar. Several of
my in-service graduate students have reported that much of the
curriculum and methods they use is largely in conflict with the
spirit of the Standards. Such an emphasis would be reflected in the
type of teaching reported in the class which was observed.

I hope that readers with experiences in special education would
provide responses to the original post.
