For courses in Inclusion/Mainstreaming or Introduction to Special Education.
This successful and comprehensive, categorically-organized methods-based text examines how to teach all students with varying abilities in the same classroom. The Seventh Edition of Teaching Special Students in General Education Classrooms is uncompromising in its dedication to prepare educators to effectively teach the range of students found in the typical elementary or secondary classroom. Using a case-based approach, the text provides information about four groups of students with special needs: students with disabilities, gifted and talented learners, culturally and linguistically diverse individuals, and students at risk for school failure. In addition, it demonstrates the vast resources we now have available through technology, and presents practical strategies for adapting standard instruction to meet the learning needs of all students in general education classrooms. Furthermore, the reauthorization of IDEA is included, emphasizing for readers why this law is important and how it impacts educators and professionals. As the practice of inclusion expands, the challenges for teachers increase. Teaching Students in General Education Classrooms, 7th Edition is everything a future teacher needs to know in order to work effectively and sensitively within increasingly diverse elementary and secondary classrooms.
