Description

For courses on how to teach students with mild disabilities, special ed methods, and learning problems. With collaboration so vital to today's educational arena, this thorough, well-organized, highly readable text concentrates on the general process of teaching-the basic "how to do it"-to help prospective teachers of children with mild disabilities in grades K-12 learn to work effectively with students, other teachers, and families. Basing coverage on their extensive experience, the authors present practical, research-based teaching strategies that relate to everyday occurrences in schools; provide motivating, experience-based activities; and offer numerous detailed lesson plans. Their personal, conversational writing style makes even complex concepts accessible, while their extensive coverage gives readers a solid understanding of what works and what doesn't in both special education classrooms and inclusive settings.show more
