For Inclusion/Mainstreaming, and Inclusive Education courses, and as a supplement to Introduction to Teaching courses.


The second edition of Inclusive Teaching takes a uniquely different approach than other texts available for inclusion courses by suggesting that the goal of teachers and schools should be to include all students with disabilities and other at-risk students– students with mild to severe disabilities, gifted and talented students, racially and culturally diverse students, students with differing sexual preferences and more–in the general education classroom. Organized around the profound question, “How can we create schools and classrooms where vastly diverse students learn well together?” the text strives to provide a myriad of helpful and creative answers to this question for our future teachers–leaders of the classroom impacting positive change for tomorrow’s schools.  Clearly organized around the way in which teachers think, from arranging the physical classroom to dealing with the social-emotional needs of students, to designing effective, multi-level, differentiated instruction, the text remains positively devoted to teaching change and impacting the future of all students learning together.
