High-quality inclusive practices maximize academic and social development and promote lifelong learning (Lundqvist, 2021). In addition, research also reveals teachers know the value of positive classroom management strategies, yet they continue to use unsuccessful strategies (Drumaz et al., 2020). Effective classroom management strategies will build high-quality inclusive classrooms (Steed et al., 2021). Through self-evaluations, action planning, and consultation, teachers can build upon their strengths and set goals to strengthen their areas of need with support and consultation. All students deserve the right to high-quality inclusive education, and studies display the need for high-quality inclusive environments. By creating a website, this project aims to provide strategies, tools, and supports to teachers to make inclusion successful in their classroom.
