We would like to invite everyone to propagate the project Learning to Include, whose goal is to prepare educators to teach typically developing children about disabilities. The project team, coordinated by Bartosz Wilimborek from Warsaw Centre for Socio-Educational Innovation and Training, is developing a database of lesson plans to be used at schools. The plans reflect the contents of Agnieszka Kossowska’s Duże sprawy w małych głowach (Big Things in Small Heads), a richly illustrated collection of fictional children’s narratives describing various disabilities, as well as epilepsy. As a member of the project’s team, Justyna Deszcz-Tryhubczak co-organized a meeting with teachers at IFA (3/12/2016) and participated in the conference project’s conference organized on 13/12/2016 at Warsaw Centre for Socio-Educational Innovation and Training, where she presented on the use of children’s and YA literature and culture in lessons about disabilities.
