Book News Annotation:
For pre-service and in-service teachers, Wood (Virginia Commonwealth U.) describes a method to promote inclusion in the classroom through a two-tiered research-based process. The process includes a problem- solving approach for identifying student problems and a framework for selecting and using research-based strategies for solving the problems, including adapting the learning environment, lesson plans, teaching techniques, the format of content, and assessment. Interventions can be used with all grades and ability levels. Each chapter has information on diversity, technology, classroom collaboration, and standards-based education. The volume is part of a series of five books designed for teacher certification. Merrill is an imprint of Pearson. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This brief Inclusion text presents highly practical and research-based strategies for promoting learning for all students in the classroom. The book is presented in a two-tier process that includes taking a problem-solving approach to identify problems and a framework for selecting and employing research based strategies or interventions for the identified problem. The text also provides universal interventions that can be used on an on-going basis in the classroom and across all ability and age levels. These strategies require little or no resources.
This is the first in a series of eight texts to address teacher shortage and professional development issues. Teachers with degrees are now seeking alternate areas of certification in this age of standards- based educational reform. This text presents practical, research-based interventions to be used to provide access to the curriculum for students with special needs, as they will now also be required to take standardized tests.
Each chapter includes a Chapter-at-a-Glance illustration, Learner Objectives, Vignettes, Summary, and Resources and Suggested Readings. Every chapter will also include information on diversity, technology, classroom collaboration, and standards-based education. A matrix for the INTASC standards for Beginning Teachers and how it aligns with the chapters in the book is located on the inside cover.
