Inclusion Coaching for Collaborative Schools
- Toby J. Karten - Inclusion Workshops
Be the coach who leads your school team to inclusion success!
You know the benefits of inclusion, and your colleagues know that you're the go-to expert when they need assistance with school and classroom implementation. Now you can take your advocacy to the next level with inclusion coaching. Inclusion works best when all team players contribute, and as coach, you'll provide the leadership your school needs to follow through on its mission in a truly collaborative way.
Just as instructional coaches help teachers improve their practice and hone their skills, you'll guide your school team in applying the very best inclusion strategies for achieving quantifiable results. Toby Karten's how-to guide will help you
- Establish your own coaching baselines
- Introduce research-based strategies for lesson planning, instruction, and recording data
- Engage staff in reflective and collaborative inclusion practices
- Manage challenges, including scheduling and co-teaching responsibilities
With timelines, planning sheets, surveys, frameworks, curriculum examples, and other practical tools, this hands-on guide is the essential resource for the newly minted inclusion coach.
