School experiment Joint lessons in lower secondary level

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The school experiment joint teaching in secondary level I is a project of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia for the integration of disabled children and young people.

"The joint teaching of disabled and non-disabled children creates favorable conditions for the positive social-emotional development of all students," said the pedagogue Dieter Dumke at the Psychological Institute of the University of Bonn.

The topic was last discussed in the state parliament in Düsseldorf in November 1998 at a hearing of the school committee on joint teaching . The school trials are individually approved by the state, but the design is the responsibility of the schools and teachers themselves. In North Rhine-Westphalia, 14 schools are taking part in the project, including mostly comprehensive schools, such as the Matthias Claudius School in Bochum . The work of the Integrated Comprehensive School Bonn-Beuel deserves special mention because it is very successful . She has already received several awards for her work (including 2nd place at the 2008 German School Prize ).

Useful additions include speech therapy , occupational therapy and physiotherapy at the school.
