All In: 18 Ways to Create Inclusive Virtual Classrooms
by Paula Kluth!

As schools closed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, many teachers, advocates, and families became concerned that inclusion would no longer be a priority for school districts. As weeks became months, many of these same teachers, advocates, and families got creative and designed structures and strategies to keep kids with and without disabilities connected to one another and to make sure that inclusive learning continued in virtual lessons and beyond. This presentation is pulled from a new book on the topic and highlights some of those structures and strategies. It is also a call to action and a reminder to keep focused on the goal of inclusion as we all social distance and plan both virtual and hybrid lessons alone and with collaborative partners. Featured ideas include learning “together-apart” with peer supports, creating online clubs & lunch tables, "going big" to adapt instruction, letting families lead, and creating accommodations in virtual spaces.

Teams, partnerships, all educators who serve students are encouraged to attend!
A ZOOM link will be sent out prior to each session and a timeline for reading will be provided at the first session.

Please register by December 22!

Books will be sent to school districts via van delivery.  If you are unable to access your building to pick up your book, please contact Jen Lorenz at
