Overview

Rethinking Disability: A Disability Studies Approach to Inclusive Practices / Edition 1

Rethinking Disability, 2nd Edition is a concise introduction to teaching students with disabilities and effectively including students with disabilities in general education classrooms. This textbook will help teachers examine their own beliefs about disability, select effective teaching approaches for the inclusive classroom, create a dynamic classroom culture, and assess student knowledge and skills. The second edition has been revised and updated throughout and includes a new section on how to do this work in less than progressive school cultures as well as an entirely new chapter on self-advocacy strategies for students with disabilities and their families.
