Overview

The Inclusive Classroom: Strategies for Effective Differentiated Instruction, 5/e captures the best of inclusion practices using a non-categorical approach. With three balanced parts, these award-winning authors explain the fundamentals of inclusive teaching, the most effective general teaching practices, and ways to differentiate instruction for specific content areas. Targeted teaching strategies show ways to improve all students' memory, attention, motivation, and peer interaction. Research highlights validate strategies and prove why these techniques are best practice. Filled with classroom-ready tips and checklists, this revision includes a new chapter on RTI, more on secondary inclusion, and the latest strategies relating to academic success.

New to the Edition:

  • Teaching strategies are specifically highlighted throughout the text so they are easier to find (See Chapters 2-16).
  • Improved Inclusion Checklists offer at-a-glance guides that address common issues that occur in inclusive settings (See Chapters 2-16).
  • Improved Research Highlights (including resources and questions for reflection)validate inclusion practices by spotlighting individual research studies that prove best practice.
  • New chapter on RTI (Chapter 7) offers information on how RTI can be planned, implemented, and assessed.
  • More coverage of secondary inclusion addresses the needs of high school students and tackles a range of topics from transition, to autism, to parent involvement.
  • New Technology Apps feature provides up-to-date information on the latest technology available to support students and teachers in inclusive classrooms.
