Special Voices: Teaching Children with Special Needs in the Regular Classroom

Special Voices: Teaching Children with Special Needs in the Regular Classroom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Special Voices is a book of stories, the stories of children with special needs in a regular fifth grade classroom. It is also the story of how their teacher learned to create a classroom environment that enabled them to overcome many of their problems. Ms. Five describes how students with various learning needs and emotional and behavioral problems became part of, and flourished within, the classroom community instead of working in isolated settings. Readers will become involved in the struggles and successes of learners whom they will easily recognize. They will hear the voices of Angela, a child with learning disabilities; Tomoko and Yasuo, two ESL children; Andrew, a child at risk; and others. Classroom teachers will be inspired by these eight children and their dedicated teacher.

Although Special Voices tells stories of eight children, these students' successes can be generalized and applied to all children. Regular-classroom teachers will find answers to many of their own problems related to special learners. They will discover how they too can include them in their classroom communities.
