    Hi everybody! I am switching positions this year from a self-contained classroom to inclusion for grades 1-3. The school does it very differently than other places I've worked or heard of, so I'd love some ideas of what to do ?
    I will be going room to room and taking about 5-7 kids in the room to a table and working with them in the room for an hour. My questions are:
    -what am I doing with them all for 60 mins?? Seems very long
    -how do I properly help up to 7 kids in a classroom at once?
    If you have been in a setting like this I would love your ideas! Thanks!

    You will need to coordinate with the gen ed teacher in the classroom, as well as look at students' IEPs, to determine what you are teaching them during the time you are in the room. You may not actually be sitting at the table with the same kids for all 60 minutes. The goal of inclusion is that you are supporting your students with the gen ed curriculum, not teaching them things that are better taught in a resource classroom. If that were the case, you might as well just pull them out of the room.
