Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book supplies educators, classroom support personnel, and administrators with numerous tools for creating positive, inclusive classroom environments for students from preschool through high school.

Reviewing the basics of cooperative learning, the authors explain how to adapt curricula and implement such techniques as multilevel instruction, the Learning Strategies approach, and the use of computer technology. They also offer practical examples of various conceptual and structural strategies that improve the learning, social skills, and self-esteem of children with a range of abilities and cultural backgrounds.

New to this edition: information on conflict resolution, tips for teaching culturally diverse students, additional case studies, results of outcomes research on existing inclusion programs, and a chapter devoted to multiple intelligences.
