Inclusion - Page 2
The inclusive school should recognise and celebrate the richness of pupil diversity
and develop appropriate responses to this.
“Cooperative Learning is fundamental to successfully educating a diversity of learners.”
Inclusion works when teachers become learners.
To be ‘Inclusive’ Teachers must be risk takers. They must be willing to risk the
way they've always done things. They must be willing to look at the same situation
in a different way and even to risk failure in order to grow, to look at obstacles
as opportunities. They must be willing to look at different methods of delivery,
ie. Cooperative Learning, different management systems, different room arrangements…
T2TUK training allows your staff to ’risk’ growth and explore collaboration in an
environment of mutual support for the benefit of all students. (See ‘What do they
T2TUK/Kagan-UK can help by showing you and your
staff a range of structures, with adaptations for the range of special need students,
to use with children with:
- Varying cognitive abilities
- Developmental and learning disabilities
- Different cultural, racial, linguistic, gender, and socioeconomic
Cooperative Learning Structures make
learning more fun for everyone.
There are over 200 structures so the content and objectives of any lesson can be
matched to the appropriate structure delivering success for all students.
Using the range of Cooperative Structures your classroom soon becomes a caring community
in which each student feels known, accepted and appreciated. The student ’voice’
is heard loud and clear avoiding disaffection, reducing exclusions. (see article

T2TUK/Kagan-UK will also work with your Parents
and Governors as equal partners in driving the Inclusion agenda. ( See Parents/
