The second edition of Inclusive Teaching takes a uniquely different approach. Organized around the profound question, "How can we create schools and classrooms where vastly diverse students learn well together?" the text strives to provide a myriad of creative answers to this question for our future teachers--leaders of the classroom impacting positive change for tomorrow's schools. Centrally focused on how to create an effective school for all learners--students with mild to severe disabilities, gifted and talented students, racially and culturally diverse students, students with differing sexual preferences and more--the authors have offered strategies for including and supporting all students to learn effectively in the general education classroom. The text synthesizes a vast array of strategies from many different sources, including workshop approaches to learning, differentiated instruction, universal design for learning, multicultural education, positive behavior support, anti-bullying practices, reducing the learning gap between minority and majority groups, and more.
Clearly organized around the way in which teachers think, from arranging the physical classroom to dealing with the social-emotional needs of students, to designing effective, multi-level, differentiated instruction, the text remains positively devoted to teaching change and impacting the future of all students learning together.
