Lisa Parisi is a fifth-grade teacher and educational innovator in inclusion classrooms.
Check out her thoughts at Lisa's Lingo

Lisa writes about her Successful Inclusive Classroom and I enjoyed speaking with her about how she sets up a classroom to work for a roomful of learning diversity. I posted a link to her site from Learning Connections---
check out the comments, too!

Lisa notes four maxims in setting up a truly inclusive classroom for success ---

Do not separate the children. They should not stand out for being classified. Remember: inclusion means to be included, not separated.

#2: Don't hide special needs. Point out that we all need assistance at times. Make it available to everyone

#3: Mix the teachers up and allow students to choose their style of learning.

#4: Keep students in the classroom as much as possible. Eliminate as many pull-outs as you can.

She uses lots of technology in her classroom. Lisa's students all have their own blog pages
and Lisa posts videos on ustream

Thanks, Lisa!
