Count Me In! Ideas for Actively Engaging Students in Inclusive Classrooms
School really should be the best time in a young person’s life – full of discovery, enjoyment and friendship. In reality, school can be a negative experience where young people feel powerless, bored and uninterested. Count Me In! shows how, by involving young people in their own learning, they not only improve their education but also feel empowered and have fun along the way.
This book provides positive and practical ways of involving young people in the inclusive classroom. At its heart is a recognition of the power of getting students involved and the value their empowerment can bring to their education. Student empowerment can mean anything from forming a partnership between teacher and student to really listening to students and allowing their voices to be heard. The book includes a whole host of practical ways to get children involved, from seeking their opinions on lessons and how they are learning to allowing them to have a say in their assessment and in school life.
This practical book will be an invaluable resource to teachers in mainstream and special schools, teacher trainers, student teachers, educational researchers and anyone interested in how to get students involved in and excited by their own learning.
