Your desk reference for success with exceptional students
Today’s teachers, especially the many who work with students with special needs, are pressed to know a little something about everything. Expertise is needed in different content and pedagogical areas, but knowledge of different types of disabilities is required as well. Wendy Murawski and Kathy Lynn Scott have assembled another reader-friendly What Really Works resource full of experiences and evidence-based practices to empower any educator.
Each chapter is presented in an easy-access and practical format suited for busy professionals. The editors and authors examine how special educational needs affect
- Content areas like reading and math
- Specialization areas like autism and learning disabilities
- Pedagogical areas like culturally responsive practices and accommodations
- Other critical areas like legal issues, behavior challenges, and home-school collaboration
As education trends promote the inclusion of students with exceptionalities, this book is the perfect resource for teachers and administrators who need to know what works…and what doesn’t.
