For the inclusion course taken by Pre- and in-service elementary and secondary school general education teachers.


With its numerous learning activities and sample lessons, this book gives teachers the tools and confidence they need to meet the educational, behavioral, and social needs of each student in today’s diverse classrooms.


Here’s practical help for today’s busy classroom teachers who identify students with special needs as both their greatest challenges and often their greatest rewards. It provides valuable ideas, guidance, and hands-on strategies to help teachers meet the educational and behavioral needs of students from diverse backgrounds and with diverse learning needs. Based on the authors’ experience and the central theme that general education teachers can make a difference in the live of all students, particularly students with special needs, it provides the tools and strategies to achieve that goal successfully.


The authors do more than describe curriculum adaptations. They provide step-by-step procedures for implementing those curriculum adaptions in the actual classroom. After reading this book, pre- and in-service teachers alike are armed with the tools and confidence they need to effectively meet all of their students’ academic and social needs.
