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?
  • What have we learned about how teacher aide support can enhance inclusive practice?
  • To what extent are we enhancing inclusion in the classroom?
  • What are we going to do next to encourage all our students to contribute and participate?
