Table of Contents
This Study Guide is designed to deepen your understanding of Leading an Inclusive School: Access and Success for ALL Students, an ASCD book by Richard A. Villa and Jacqueline S. Thousand. The study guide questions and activities are not meant to cover all aspects of the book. Rather, they are intended to address selected ideas we believe might warrant further reflection. Most of the questions and activities in this study guide are ones you might think about and answer on your own or in partnership with educators, administrators, and/or parents in your school or district who are interested in inclusive education and taking action to lead inclusive schooling efforts.
The tragic irony … is that as soon as we take away students' sense of belonging, we completely undermine their capacity to learn the skills that will enable them to belong. Herein lies the most painful "Catch-22" situation that confronts students with disabilities—they can't belong until they learn, but they can't learn because they are prevented from belonging. (p. 88)
