Each idea can be displayed for a week or so. The idea may be a set of manipulatives, an adapted book, a modified test, or an image/write up of a favorite blog or website. You can even put a comment sheet or poster next to the idea so colleagues can post comments or ask questions.

    I love this idea. Teachers helping teachers. Would really be useful in my school district seeing as they are so far from being inclusive. On a side note, I attended an inclusion conference with Paula today & it was amazing! She really knows her stuff & has unlimited ways of including any child in the general Ed environment. I arrived feeling unsure if my 5 yr. old daughter should be in the gen Ed class & left feeling empowered, full of great information & research that proves that all children should be in the gen Ed environment. Thank you Paula!

    Thanks so much, Kara! It is always so great to get these sorts of messages. Thanks for taking time from your busy schedule to attend the conference!

    This email has been sitting in my inbox for a loooong time. Wanted to share how much I love this idea. I am always tempted to leave articles and book in the teacher’s lounge. I think a bulletin board would be a wonderful addition. Thanks for always making me think.
