Today's classrooms are filled with learners with a variety of diverse needs and abilities. This new resource, based on Toby Karten's bestselling Inclusion Strategies That Work!, provides teachers with research-based, practical activities for the inclusive classroom. As difficult as it may sound, it is indeed possible to simultaneously embrace standards as well as differences in abilities, learning styles, and intelligences. Whether it's a learning disability, sight impairment, or behavioral challenge, this book attempts to address teacher frustrations and replace them with proactive, effective strategies that apply across the curriculum. These activities are not intended to replace curriculum, but are designed to enhance instructional repertoire through active learning environments that accommodate students' differing needs. The book is divided into eight sections: Reading; Writing; Math; Connecting Students to the Curriculum; Comprehension and Study Skills; Reflective Assessment, Testing, and Grading; Creating a Climate for Classroom Acceptance; and Teacher-Friendly Inclusion Forms, designed to simplify the inclusion process. Also included are helpful Inclusion Tips that enhance the value of each activity so that all students can learn!
