    Thomas the Henderson Inclusion School sounds revolutionary in how we think of accommodating differences in the classroom! Is there a particular contact we should reach out to at Henderson if we would like to learn more?

    I’m really liking the notion of “blurring the lines” among the categories we’ve artificially created for students. Nobody experiences disability 100% of the time, in every situation; nor is someone ALWAYS “gifted and talented”. Both conditions (and all in between) depend entirely on the task at hand. I think our challenge with inclusionary classrooms is to create collaborative learning situations where it is just as likely that the student experiencing disability is hailed as the resident expert (and the student with academic gifts as the novice learner) as the other way around. Knowing all our students well, and being aware of their strengths and capabilities will help us make the choices that lead to those situations.
