The most widely-used text on the topic of collaboration, Interactions is a guide for preprofessionals and professionals to help them understand and participate effectively in their interactions with other school professionals and parents, in an increasingly diverse world that is also now routinely electronically and globally connected.
Interactions presents theory and conceptual principles heavily seasoned with examples, cases, and applied activities. Written specifically to enable readers to quickly use their skills in professional settings, the book will be a useful tool for pre-service educators and practitioners–whether they are engaged in formal instructional settings, a study group, or independent study. The book recognizes that knowledge about instructional practices that can improve student outcomes are more important than ever before, and educators are scrambling to respond to the federal legislative mandates that require increasingly high standards and a clear trajectory of improving academic performance for all students, including those with disabilities and other special needs.
