This methods text is a practical, user-friendly guide for the prospective or practicing special education teacher that offers specific suggestions for how to promote student learning in inclusive settings at both elementary and secondary levels for students with high-incidence disabilities. While Inclusion texts focus on the general education teacher, this text teaches effective pedagogy in a practical, realistic way for the special educator. Readers learn how to provide social, behavioral and academic support to students in the general education curriculum and context but also learn how to provide explicit and intensive support for students with disabilities to ensure learning. The book takes a balanced stance on inclusion, emphasizing the importance of decision-making based on students' academic and social needs, and moves fluidly between theory and pedagogy by illustrating important concepts and constructs with realistic examples and practical ideas that can be readily implemented. Readers will learn how to provide more intensive individualized intervention for students with particular learning or behavioral challenges within an inclusive context. Both authors bring years of experience as special education classroom teachers to this book and have conducted numerous research studies in inclusive classrooms.
