  1. ASCD Arias Publication: Success with IEPs

    As the inclusive classroom becomes the placement of choice for many students with disabilities, the implementation of a student's individualised education plan (IEP) is no longer the sole responsibility of a special education teacher. Together the general education teacher and the special education teacher work to ensure each student’s progress toward meeting carefully crafted goals. Author and education Vicki Caruana explores principles that debunk some common misconceptions about how to work with students with disabilities. She offers insights, tips and strategies that will help teachers fine-tune their practice to better meet each child's unique needs. For teachers uncertain of their ability to meet the needs of students with IEPs, this manageable guide is a great place to start.

  2. ASCD Arias Publication: Engaging & Challenging Gifted Students

    Though nearly 5 million students can be characterised as gifted and talented in the United States alone, many exceptional learners 'fly under the radar'. Because they are not appropriately challenged in the general classroom, they never meet their full potential - in school or in life. Author Jenny Grant Rankin equips general classroom teachers with the information and strategies they need to spot, advocate for, engage and challenge exceptional learners in their classrooms. Filled with useful strategies and poignant personal accounts, this book gives you the 'meat' of what you need to prevent those students who need to be challenge and engaged from slipping through the cracks.
