2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

This qualitative study investigated how activity systems afford or constrain access to inclusive practices and settings for special education teacher candidates. Three special education teacher candidates participating in a fieldwork practicum seminar were interviewed. A cultural historical activity theory lens was applied to the interview sessions. Cultural historical activity theory can be useful in understanding teacher learning processes. Rules, community, and division of labor were three themes that emerged from the data analysis. Findings reveal implications for teacher education focused on access, mentorship, expansive learning, and feedback-reflection cycles.
