Inclusive classrooms and self-contained classrooms are the two most effective mediums of providing special education to children having difficulties ranging from mild to severe ones (Khalsa & Miyake, 2005). Over six million students aged between 3 and 21 years receive this tertiary means of education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (Wilmshurst & Brue, 2005, pp. 1-2).
Interviewing two teachers supervising inclusive classrooms and two supervising self-contained classrooms was the primary research methodology. Thereafter, the empirical data obtained from these interviews will be analyzed in the light of relevant pedagogical theories. This paper is going to make a report that will integrate the research findings and assess the pertinent outcomes.
Interview findings were the primary sources of data for this project. To conduct the interviews, I had to go to four special educators with a set of questionnaire. The questionnaire contained crucial paradigms for theoretical clarity, which, in turn, provided the required methodologies of data analysis. Given below are the questions and corresponding answers given by the interviewees:
Instructors who were interviewed shared similar opinions on their teaching and learning experiences, particularly in models that endorse collaborative responsibilities for both inclusive and self-contained classrooms. To put it simply, they emphasized on outlining specific learning modules, assessment metrics and reiterated the need for closer attention to students with reading difficulties. They also gave unanimous opinion on the need to have vocational training as a compulsory method of teaching in upper classes.
This interviewer sought to differentiate between the basic theoretical aspects of both models in contention here. While instructors in affiliation with inclusive pedagogical formats were quite satisfied with the outcomes of their coaching, teachers of self-contained classrooms did find it inadequate as
