About the Author:


Michael F. Giangreco, Ph.D., has spent nearly 40 years working with children and adults in a variety of capacities including special education teacher, community residence counselor, camp counselor, school administrator, educational consultant, university teacher, and researcher. Dr. Giangreco received a bachelor's degree from the State University of New York-College at Buffalo and graduate degrees from the University of Vermont and the University of Virginia. He received his doctoral degree from Syracuse University and has been a faculty member at the University of Vermont since 1988. His work and educational experiences have led Dr. Giangreco to focus his research, training, and other work activities on three interrelated aspects of educating students with and without disabilities in their local general education schools: 1) individualized curriculum planning, 2) adapting curriculum and instruction, and 3) coordinating support services in schools. Dr. Giangreco is the author of numerous professional publications, including Choosing Outcomes and Accommodations for Children (COACH): A Guide to Educational Planning for Students with Disabilities, Second Edition, with Chigee J. Cloninger and Virginia Salce Iverson (Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 1998); the first two sets of Quick-Guides to Inclusion: Ideas for Educating Students with Disabilities (Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 1997, 1998); and Vermont Interdependent Services Team Approach (VISTA): A Guide to Coordinating Educational Support Services (Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 1996). Beginning in 1998, he collaborated with artist Kevin Ruelle to complete an unusual project consisting of three sets of educational cartoons: Ants in His Pants (Peytral Publications, 1998); Flying by the Seat of His Pants (Peytral Publications, 1999); Teaching Old Logs New Tricks (Peytral Publications, 2000). Dr. Giangreco's work has been advanced by the feedback and input of innumerable students (with or without disabilities), parents, teachers, administrators, related services providers, and other colleagues.

Mary Beth Doyle, Ph.D., works for the Vermont Department of Education as Project Coordinator of Vermont's Higher Education Collaborative to increase the number of licensed special education teachers available to the state's public schools. This project is aimed at providing field-based access to higher education for teachers in rural communities around the state. A unique aspect of this project is the partnerships that have been established among the University of Vermont, Castleton State College, Johnson State College, Lyndon State College, and St. Michael's College. These higher education institutions are working together with the state Department of Education and school districts on the design and delivery of instruction as well as administrative issues to create a strategic approach to issues of limited access to higher education for teachers around the state. The majority of Mary Beth's work has focused on creating positive learning communities for all children in which adults create a sense of welcome. To this end, Mary Beth's writing and training activities focus on issues of curriculum adaptations, paraprofessional teaming, and collaboration.

Linda Davern, M.S., is a doctoral student in the Division of Special Education and Rehabilitation at Syracuse University.

Her publications are used by many educators and parents to learn how to provide quality education in inclusive classrooms to students with severe and multiple disabilities. Dr. Downing provided numerous professional development trainings in many regions of the world and served as the keynote speaker at several national and international conferences. She was known for her practical, invigorating, and humorous presentations and workshops. Dr. Downing's career in the field of special education began as a teacher of students with visual impairments and multiple disabilities including deafblindness. She was Associate Professor at the University of Arizona in Tucson and Professor at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). She directed or codirected several federally funded personnel preparation, research-to-practice, and technical assistance projects and was committed to preparing exceptional, highly qualified teachers, whose role she saw as change agents for the future. Through Dr. Downing's teaching and hands-on guidance, her students developed a passion for teaching and a strong commitment to supporting quality lives for students with disabilities and their families. While at CSUN, Dr. Downing contributed to the development of the CHIME Institute's Charter School and was instrumental in its high-quality inclusive educational practices. Dr. Downing served on the National TASH Board of Directors for six years and was Past President of Cal-TASH and AZ-TASH (the California and Arizona state chapters of TASH). She also served as an associate editor of Research and Practices for Persons with Severe Disabilities. Dr. Downing retired from CSUN in 2007 and returned to Tucson, where she lived until her death in July 2011. Her indomitable spirit, passion, and determination have been a driving force in our field, and her work continues to inspire and create positive and successful learning outcomes for students.

Quick-Guide #7: Provide Learning Experiences that Are Active and Participatory

Excerpted from Quick-Guides to Inclusion: Ideas for Educating Students with Disabilities, edited by Michael F. Giangreco, Ph.D.

Copyright © 1991 by Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co. All rights reserved. No part of this excerpt may be reproduced or reprinted without permission in writing from the publisher.

I've heard teachers say, "A student with disabilities wouldn't get a lot out of being in that class because the teacher does a lot of large-group lectures, worksheets, and paper-and-pencil tests." My first reaction is, "You're right, it doesn't sound like that situation matches the needs of the student with disabilties." This leaves me wondering, "Is this kind of educational situation a mismatch for any of the students who don't have disability labels?" Given the diversity of learning styles among students, educators are increasingly questioning whether passive, didactic approaches really meet the needs of very many students.

Activity-based learning is well-suited to including learners with a wide range of educational needs and learning styles. One of the gifts that students with disabilities can bring to the classroom is to highlight the need to use more active, participatory, creative approaches to learning. In the process of increasing the amount of activity and participation to accommodate the needs of a student with disabilities, teachers often realize that these approaches are motivating, preferred, and effective for many other students in the class. They seem to be more enjoyable for the teachers too.

Increasing activity and participation can include a wide range of options, such as individual or cooperative projects, drama, experiments, field study, art media, computers, research, educational games, multimedia, various forms of choral responding, and many others. Any actions you take as a teacher can probably be adapted to be a meaningful learning experience for your students. Making sure students have lots to do that is interesting and motivating can have side benefits such as diminishing behavior problems and encouraging positive social behaviors. Your students can be very helpful in designing active learning experiences.
