SCEC Inclusive Books Back Packs Project
- Through this project we tried to increase the awareness of the diverse needs of children in schools by providing information in school and community settings. We received funding from the Cedar Falls Kiwanis to buy library book sets which are age based (K-5) or middle school ages (6-8) so that appropriate literature materials could be provided for in-classroom use. Each one of these sets contained books that classroom teachers could use to supplement their teaching or use as a whole to bring disability awareness to their students. UNI SCEC members worked with the schools to see what books and themes were the most useful at the schools. UNI SCEC also provided examples of lessons and activities that teachers could use in the classroom to utilize the materials in building understanding and appreciation of all students.
