Differentiate instruction to match and heighten students' and teachers' abilities while honoring standards!
With the same "can do" attitude that made her first book, Inclusion Strategies That Work! so popular, Toby Karten takes her latest book to the next level by emphasizing standards, linking the best inclusive practices with content-specific curriculum, and demonstrating how teachers can reach individual learners while honoring whole-class dynamics.
Meeting the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, More Inclusion Strategies That Work! focuses on using the strengths of students with disabilities to give them more confidence and a greater advantage when learning new concepts. With research-based methods for identifying and meeting the needs of students with special needs, this valuable guide presents instructional and accommodation strategies to help all students access the general curriculum. This reader-friendly handbook provides teachers with targeted assistance through:
- Sample standards-based lessons organized by age and ability level
- Tools for assessing students' mastery of curriculum concepts
- Approaches for preparing students for standardized testing
- Numerous reproducibles for immediate use
Whether you are a general or a special education K–12 teacher, you'll return again and again to this must-have reference to meet the challenges of inclusive instruction and celebrate the successes of all your students, especially students with disabilities.
