There are five Noblesville East Middle School students in teacher Blair Morwick’s sixth grade classroom who traditionally would have been labeled “special education.”
They have what are considered to be severe cognitive disabilities but sit next to students of all abilities, including gifted students, and learn the same things, just modified to a level that works for them.
For example, earlier this year when the class did a solar system scavenger hunt, one group of students was hunting easy-to-read facts that teachers posted around the room while their classmates looked for papers with QR codes that, once scanned with their iPad, took them to a more complex online text.
