For Secondary Inclusion courses.
This book focuses on secondary inclusive classrooms and the instructional strategies and content-specific techniques that ensure the learning success of all middle and secondary students.
Focused on research-based strategies, this first edition text shows how to accommodate and modify instruction for secondary students with special needs. Organized in two parts, it explains the developmental differences, disabilities, and social skills deficits that can impact adolescents and then offers specific ways to improve instruction using strategies such as co-teaching, differentiated instruction, strategies instruction, and peer-assisted learning. Content-area chapters address strategies for teaching literacy, math, science, self-determination, and social skills. Chapter-opening study questions serve as advanced organizers and closing cases and activities provide real-life, diversity-rich examples of strategies in action.
