    In its most basic form, inclusion in education is ensuring that every kid, regardless of their specific learning requirements or impediments, gets equal access to learning and equal opportunities to succeed. Inclusion in schools entails more than just providing extra help to students with special needs. It’s about establishing a learning environment that works for all students, regardless of whether they have a handicap, speak English as a second language, belong to a minority group, come from a low-income home, or face other challenges in learning and achieving. This presents problems for teachers: how do you ensure that all of these children, with their various needs and learning hurdles, are included? While particular plans are frequently required to suit the specific needs of the children in your class, there are several things that all instructors can do to create a safe, pleasant, meaningful, and inclusive atmosphere. Here are some tips which can help the teacher to create an inclusive classroom:

    • Create opportunities for all children to be heard.
    • Define explicit minimal behavior requirements.
    • Consistently enforce those requirements.
    • Develop a ‘scaffolded’ learning strategy.
    • Deal with low-level disruptions delicately.
