Teaching Students with Special Learning Needs: Lessons Learned from 30 Years of Research

What Does Research Tell Us about Inclusion? Results from Meta-Analysis

Thomas Scruggs

16:30 - 17:30

This presentation will summarize what I have learned from my years of intervention research with all types of learners. Topics will include cognitive strategy use, mnemonic strategies, test-taking skills, peer mediation, hands-on learning in science, text-processing strategies, and self-regulated strategy development. I will discuss these topics and draw some general conclusions about instruction and learning for all types of students.

What Does Research Tell Us about Inclusion? Results from Meta-Analysis: Over the past half-century, researchers have tried to understand the process of including students with special needs in general education settings. The result has been hundreds of investigations addressing questions such as: (a) What are teacher attitudes toward inclusion? (b) What are the consequences of inclusion for all learners? and © What goes on – and how is instruction delivered -- in inclusive classrooms? I will summarize research on all these topics, based upon meta-analysis techniques, and discuss implications for implementing and maintaining inclusive classrooms.
