1. What type of inclusion service delivery model is provided in your school? (i.e. full inclusion with a full-time collab, inclusion w/ part-time collab, w/ pull-out or push-in, etc.)

2. Ratio of SWDs to SWoDs: For each inclusion class, how many students have IEPs? How many do not have IEPs?

3. For each inclusion class, what are the different disabilities that your students have? How did you learn about their disabilities and their needs?

•Identify one or more possible ethical considerations given the types of questions you would like to ask. For example, if you are asking someone to reflect on his or her experience as a drug addict, perhaps that person will reveal stories about hurting loved ones or breaking the law. How might you handle this?
