Description

For the Inclusion/Mainstreaming course. Born of the author's extensive experience in preparing teachers, this accessible, categorical inclusion text offers a practical perspective on inclusion in today's multicultural, multilingual, and broadly diverse classrooms. The author offers this perspective while simultaneously challenging pre-service and in-service teachers with a relatively new way of thinking about teaching: universal design in education. A thorough discussion of the foundations of inclusion and of the law at the beginning of the text is followed by specific disability chapters, methods chapters, and content area chapters. Each of the chapters (except for the foundational chapters in Part I) contain practical strategies and methods for the preservice teacher in all age groups.show more
