Other Speakers: 

Learn how to advance inclusion through a community of practice model.  We will provide an overview of how early childhood teachers in Tucson are studying and applying best classroom practices for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers through 16 different communities of practice. After a brief overview of how this system operates, the majority of the session will focus on the successes and “lessons learned” from the Inclusion community of practice, Inspiring Inclusion.    This will be a highly interactive session, with ample time for questions and discussions, and attendees will receive a variety of handouts and materials to enable them to replicate a community of practice approach aligned with their own local needs.
