How can today’s educators rise to the challenges of teaching in the inclusive classroom, while at the same time making teaching more rewarding and beneficial for all students? In her new book, acclaimed international educational consultant Kathy Perez provides powerful instructional strategies, not only for students with special needs, but also for their general education peers.
The New Inclusion: Differentiated Strategies to Engage ALL Students encompasses a broader understanding of the inclusive classroom (F–8), embracing all the different needs that teachers face – from special education, to English as an additional language or dialect (EAL/D) learners, to a wide spectrum of student ability and readiness. This innovative resource combines the latest research in brain-based teaching and student engagement with useful interventions and differentiated strategies.
Designed to be of practical and immediate use, all chapters include a focus on the needs of less-able readers. In addition, information for implementation and adaptation is provided to accommodate various year levels. The text includes classroom vignettes, illustrations, diagrams, highlight boxes and many more user-friendly features.
