  8. Teaching for Inclusion: Eight Principles for Effective and Equitable Practice

    Teaching for Inclusion shows how educators navigate the competing demands of everyday practice with examples from real schools. The author offers eight principles that can be used to advance an inclusive pedagogy. These principles permit teachers to both acknowledge and draw from the conditions within which they work, even as they uphold their commitments to equitable schooling for students from historically marginalised groups, particularly students with disabilities. Situated in the everyday realities of classrooms that often include mandated testing requirements and accountability policies, this book addresses multiple dimensions of inclusive practice including curricular decision-making, the "grammar" of schooling, the states of family communities and the demands of professional roles.

In this provocative book, Gross offers a new approach to addressing inequities by focusing on students who have succeeded despite struggling with the impacts of poverty and trauma. Gross draws on her experience as a college president to outline practical steps that post-secondary institutions can take to create structures and opportunity that build reciprocal trust.
