In the Classroom
A SWIFT classroom represents a diverse learning community. In a SWIFT
classroom, ALL students are learning together and have the supports
they need to fully participate in the general education curriculum.
General educators, specialized educators, support staff, and family and
community members work in tandem to differentiate instruction. For
example, in a SWIFT classroom, you may witness a parent volunteer
practicing sight words with a student, a general educator and a
specialized educator leading differentiated small reading groups, a
speech/language therapist working on reading vocabulary with another
group of students, and classmates collaborating on a reading
comprehension activity. In a SWIFT classroom, students are valued for
their unique contributions to the learning community and educators have
the support they need to successfully teach ALL students.
