What is Active Participation?
Being there is not enough. Students with disabilities benefit from placement in general education classrooms when they are given opportunities to actively participate! Often teams underestimate student abilities and mistake passivity for participation. This handout compares and contrasts active and passive participation to inspire teams to raise their expectations.
We invite you to contact DSG if you would like to request a peer presentation or training for your school district. Every year the DSG celebrates National Inclusive Schools Week the first week in December by sending out celebration kits to school districts. Learn more about the campaign, and request your own celebration kit!
