This volume presents the narrative of the origins of the Students with Additional Needs (SWANs) research project that was conducted over more than ten years. It discusses the context in whi ch the idea for the SWANs study emerged and the importance of criti cal incidents in stimulating research and development. It illustrates the events in a school classroom in 2003 involving a student teacher evaluation class, a supervising teacher who did no t know how to include a student with additional needs in classroom activities, and the inadequacy of materials available for mainstream teachers who had students with additional needs in the classroom.
