Reform, Inclusion and Teacher Education: Towards a New Era of Special and Inclusive Education in Asia-Pacific Regions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This ground-breaking book considers current perspectives on special education reform in the Asia-Pacific region. It has a major focus on a new era of special education, and how this relates to education reform towards inclusive education.

With major changes being proposed under current educational reform and confusion as to how to instigate these measures, this book provides ways to better prepare teachers. It is helpfully divided into three different sections of education reform:

    • Education Reform in the Asia-Pacific region reviews broad trends and issues in special education across the region, including Taiwan, Korea, Australia, India, China and Hong Kong.
    • Preparing Teachers to work in Inclusive Classrooms focuses on curricula and pedagogical practices for teacher education. This section considers different approaches to preparing teachers such as cross-categorical, collaborative, innovations, and the impact of teachers? attitudes, perceptions and concerns on inclusion.
    • Effective Special & Inclusive Practices draws upon evidence?based research to provide best practice models to assist in developing inclusive school communities.

Each section addresses a list of objectives and questions; suggests best practice pedagogy; and concludes with a support section with useful websites and suggested professional development activities. This book will interest teachers, teacher educators, university lecturers in education and post graduate students.

Book News Annotation:

The international trend of inclusiveness for students with disabilities poses a special challenge for student and teacher education in a region that does not have a history of such practice. Just as the U.S., the Asia-Pacific region also faces the dilemma of how raising standards in school reform generally may adversely affect special needs students. Forlin (Hong Kong Institute of Education) and Lian (special education, U. of Hong Kong) introduce 17 culturally-sensitive chapters by international educators that discuss the shift from a separate but equal approach toward a whole schooling one, and examples of local effective teacher training programs and international best practices for supporting inclusive education. Resources are listed. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
