Sixth Annual Inclusive Education Summit

On December 2 the 3rd and 5th grade inclusion students at PS154 went to the Sixth Annual Inclusive Education Summit at the CUNY Graduate Center. Students demonstrated how they are “Champions of Inclusion” by sharing their accomplishments and hard work in their studies and academics. Students engaged in dialogue about inclusive education in their schools. They shared their projects with other inclusive education communities within New York City. Students presented with confidence and demonstrated great public speaking skills.

Each student was assigned a realistic fiction book about a person or people with a specific disability. Students were asked to read the book and create a Thinking Map Book Report. Students were then given a specific thinking map to complete on chart paper to show understanding of the text and how people with disabilities can be included in the everyday world.

Students did a fantastic job and had a lot of fun! It was a great experience for everyone. We are looking forward to next years Inclusive Education Summit!
