This text offers a wealth of practical and proven strategies for successfully including students with disabilities in general education classrooms. The text provides targeted strategies for the subject and skill areas, as well as special needs of individual students, with a strong focus on instructional strategies applied to specific student need areas. An overall theme of “effective, differentiated instruction” is infused throughout the text, relating to those practices that are most closely aligned with academic success. The text is unique in its three-part coverage of 1). the fundamentals of teaching students with special needs, 2). effective general teaching practices, and 3).inclusive practices in specific subject areas. With a strong focus on instructional strategies and how they are applied to specific student need areas, the text goes further by featuring more specific strategies than any other text, and extensive information about the most effective strategies available, and when and how to use them.. This strong focus instructs pre-service teachers and other education personnel on how they can implement in the classroom specific strategies to address a very wide range of grade levels, skill levels, academic content areas; and extensive and very specific information on strategies teachers can use in the areas of most concern to them, e.g., behavior management, handling student confrontations, promoting literacy, memory for school content, motivation to learn, maintaining student attention, adapting assessment and improving test scores, and specific strategies for adapting specific lessons in math, science, social studies, and career and technical education. Specifically written for pre-service or in-service special education teachers who will work with general education teachers in K-12 classrooms, the text is also relevant for school psychologists, counselors, support staff, and other school personnel interested in helping all students succeed in the classroom.
This Student Value Edition is a three-hole punched, loose-leaf version of the textbook and provides students the opportunity to personalize their book by incorporating their own notes and taking only the portion of the book they need to class – all at a fraction of the bound book price.

I was a little disappointed when I received this book. I didn't know until I received it that it wouldn't be bound. The entire text book had to be put in a binder because it had been 3 hole punched. Disappointed to say the least and wanted to return the book. Unfortunately I didn't have time to send the book back and get another so I had to keep if for what it was. If that doesn’t bother you and you want to save a few bucks then I’d say it was worth it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you are thinking about purchasing this "Student Value Edition" to save some money, think again:-0 These are a plastic wrapped stack of "loose leaf" page copies, that vary in quality from page to page. Honestly, "My daughter could have photo-copied a classmates book, for about the same results!" Saddly; My Daughter did call a B&N customer service rep (before purchasing), to find out why this edition was so "Cheap" (Compared To The Real Edition), and the rep assured Her that it was a real (Bound) book, just soft cover.... To Top It Off, when B&N email requested a lengthily feedback survey on "The Customer Service Phone Call My Daughter Made"(just like they requested this product feedback too), All this was documented in the survey! (Even though I checked off for someone to contact me, No one ever respond:-( Once Again... This Is "NOT" A Book; and if class hadn't already started, it would have been returned!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
