Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focusing on quality classroom instruction, Practical Strategies for the Inclusive Classroom presents pre-service teachers, alternate route candidates, and in-service teachers with highly practical research-based practices to promote inclusion in the classroom. With this first book in the Pathways to Teaching Series you will learn to successfully promote learning for all students through a unique two-tiered research-based process that includes:

  • A problem-solving approach to identify if a problem exists or could exist, what hypothesis should be made, and why the problem is occurring.
  • A framework for selecting and employing research-based strategies/interventions for the identified problem.

This text also provides universal interventions that can be used on an on-going basis in your classroom and across all ability and grade levels.

Synopsis:

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.
