Abstract

Inclusion, which began as an implication in Public Law 94-142, now draws the attention of many authors, teachers and parents. The "least restrictive environment" phrase from that legislation leads to the following simple conclusion: Many of the strategies mentioned in the research of this paper produce real results.

Classwide peer tutoring, thoughtful reading strategies that can be individually tailored and mnemonics for remembering those strategies do work. Still, the weight of their worth comes down to how well the teacher does his job everyday. In fact, all successes and failures of teaching come down to that basic fact. If a teacher struggles with the basics of how to teach, the results will be poor at best. A good teacher, committed to seeing that every student learns is practicing the best kind of inclusion. When all students learn, we all reap rewards down the road.
