Description

For Methods and Curriculum courses for Students with Mild to Moderate Disabilities. With an interactive format and enthusiastic writing style, this text provides prospective teachers of learners with mild to moderate disabilities a full complement of very practical, yet research-based practices and strategies suitable for Kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms. The authors emphasize the need to consistently assess, plan, organize, implement, and evaluate instruction based on knowledge of the learner, intended learner outcomes, and the curriculum. Diversity and assessment are thoroughly integrated throughout the comprehensive coverage of both traditional and contemporary approaches to teaching. Considerable attention is given to classroom integration of both educational and assistive technologies. In addition, material on each curriculum area includes discussion of national performance standards as well as strategies for helping learners with disabilities access the general education curriculum.show more
