Teaching for Inclusion shows how educators navigate the competing demands of everyday practice with examples from urban, suburban, primary and secondary schools. The author offers eight guiding 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.

Book Features: 

  • Values teachers as contributors to the field of inclusive education, rather than technicians implementing given concepts. 

  • Offers ways of thinking about inclusive practices that educators can adapt to their own school contexts. 

  • Captures the real dilemmas faced by classroom teachers as they implement recommended practices. 

  • Incorporates a range of perspectives, including educators, students and families.
