Description

For the K-12 special education methods course for future teachers of students with learning problems. Knowing that no one approach to teaching is right for all children all of the time, this comprehensive, yet accessible, case-based text presents current "best practices," with the aim of helping prospective teachers learn to tailor instruction to the diverse needs and abilities of students with learning problems. The authors explore the entire inclusion movement and the theories of teaching and learning that inform it; discuss the nature of students with learning problems and the characteristics of effective teachers; and, describe a broad spectrum of proven instructional strategies for all curriculum areas. Finally, they examine the unique challenges and opportunities that transitions create for students with learning problems.show more
