6. Talk about how it went

Meet to talk about how the strategy from Step 4 went. Discuss and plan how you might adapt or modify your practice.

Questions to guide reflection

  • What did we try?
  • What happened when we did this? How did the students respond to the strategy? How did the adults experience and respond to the strategy?
  • How might we change our practice next time?
  • In what ways are we more aware of our views and assumptions about disability? Have our views changed in any way?
  • To what extent do we see all students in our class as active, capable learners? How do we show this?
  • How would our students know that we see them as active, capable learners?
