Integration of students with special needs is not rocket science

Yesterday I was asked how I would ensure integration of students with special needs into my French classroom. (by the way, wish me luck, it was during an interview. I so need a permanent position for September!) Now that I think about my response, I realize that the way I would do so is not all that different from how I teach in general.

Teaching practices that are explicit and mindful of all of the kids in my classroom will work for all kids, not just kids with special needs.
