Creating Inclusive Classrooms: Effective and Reflective Practices [With Myeducationlab]
Synopses & Reviews
Creating an inclusive classroom means understanding federal legislation as well as national and state standards, but the practical and streamlined seventh edition of Creating Inclusive Classrooms: Effective and Reflective Practices recognizes that it means more than that.
It means being reflective about your own teaching so you can better differentiate instruction for ALL of your students.
It means collaborating with educators and families to create the most successful educational experience for ALL of your students.
More than anything it means taking into account the strengths and challenges of EACH student in today’s diverse classroom, and implementing practical strategies that address disability as well as issues of gender, race, ethnicity, language, socioeconomic status, and family structure.
This text goes beyond the typical inclusion text, translating theory and research into practices you can use in your inclusive classroom by illustrating the principles of effective inclusion through classroom scenarios, online footage, and successful strategies.
Framework for Inclusive Practice
A framework of four principles of effective inclusion is built into each chapter, demonstrating that inclusion is not just a government mandate but a principled philosophy for reflective and effective teaching for all students.
All Learners Succeed
A focus on differentiation, diversity, collaboration, and effective inclusive practice gives you the guidance you need to create a successful inclusive classroom for ALL of your students.
