This text uses a straightforward approach and a highly personalized tone to present research and teaching practices, emphasizing the effects of disabilities on the lives of individuals, their families, and their teachers. Themes of commonality and collaboration encourage respect, minimize teacher anxiety, and de-emphasize the typical clinical approach to this content. This updated version includes an 8-page insert highlighting the 2004 IDEA Reauthorization Legislation as well as a table correlating the new HM Video Cases to specific chapters in the book."Portfolio Activities" help students prepare for their careers and provide resources such as online templates.Fully integrated multicultural coverage reflects the advisory work of nationally known specialist Festus Obiakor (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee).Houghton Mifflin Video Cases, four- to six-minute video modules presenting real classroom scenarios, enable students to observe the day-to-day challenges and rewards of teaching from the convenience of their computers. Available on the Online Teaching and Study Centers, HM Video Cases are enhanced by classroom artifacts, Viewing Questions, Interview Transcripts, Key Terms, and bonus video footage.
