Creating Inclusive Classrooms: Effective and Reflective Practices for All Students, 6/e

Spencer Salend

The sixth edition of Creating Inclusive Classrooms: Effective and Reflective Practices for All Students goes beyond the typical inclusion text in its reflective discussions on how to teach students with varying learning abilities. The text contains all of the core information that an inclusion text requires and then takes the reader to a higher level by including issues of gender, race, ethnicity, language, socioeconomic status, and family structures.

Features of the sixth edition include:

  • Principles of effective inclusion as a framework for the text. The following principles are integrated into each chapter and demonstrate that inclusion is not just a government mandate, but a principled philosophy for reflective and effective teaching for all students:
    • all learners and equal access
    • individual strengths and needs
    • reflective practices and differentiated instruction
    • community and collaboration
  • The latest information on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004 (Chapter 1). Includes how IDEA 2004 aligns with the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), the most recent research on inclusion, and how both legislation and research affect students, families, and educators alike.
  • NEW! IEP CD-ROM accompanies every new copy of the text. Features videos, interactive quizzes, tutorials, reflection activities, IEP forms, and a wealth of resources to help you to better understand the IEP process. The CD-ROM is integrated into the text with an icon and directives for the reader.
  • NEW! A Guide to Action feature. This new feature will guide you in creating a plan of action to enhance your teaching effectiveness related to inclusive practices.
  • NEW! Expanded coverage on state-of-the-art technology found in Chapter 8.
  • Four chapters on Differentiated Instruction. The only text to devote such detail to this important subject and inclusive classrooms. (See Part III, Table of Contents).
  • Classroom-based examples and case studies of teachers implementing effective inclusive educational practices, These examples are integrated throughout the chapter narrative and with the Inclusive Classrooms: Video Cases on CD-ROM that accompanies the text.
  • The integration of CEC, PRAXIS, and INTASC professional standards. Each chapter summary demonstrates where chapter content aligns with these standards.

    Great textbook for Special Ed

    I was very impressed with the cost of this textbook. I saved more from Barnes and Noble than purchasing it at the University bookstore. I was also pleased with the speedy delivery with no additional cost.
    The text itself is quite comprehensive and thorough with many extras, but I did not purchase the companion disk for an additional cost so it's hard to say if that component is useful.
