The new generation of teachers needs a new kind of special education textbook—one that focuses on children, not labels. That's why Whitney Rapp & Katrina Arndt developed Teaching Everyone, the first text that fully prepares teachers to see past disability labels and work with all students' individual needs and strengths.
Accessible and forward-thinking, this inclusive special education text will get Kâ€“12 teachers ready to work effectively within today's schools and meet the learning needs of a wide range of students. Educators will:
- Align their teaching with the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Initial Content Standards. Each chapter clearly explains how the content helps students meet specific standards.
- Discover a truly progressive, inclusive approach to education. Breaking free of a categorical approach to disability, this text reveals how to stop relying on labels to access supports for students—and work with each child as an individual instead.
- Get comprehensive information in one volume.A thorough primer on inclusive special education, this textbook covers all the critical topics teachers need to know about (see below), for a fraction of the cost of similar textbooks.
- Learn effective teaching strategies for major academic content areas. Educators will get clear, research-backed strategies for teaching reading, writing, science, math, and social studies—including guidance on keeping students engaged and assessing their progress.
- Get a deep and personal understanding of student and teacher perspectives. With the case studies and narratives from teachers and people with disabilities, educators will have keen first-hand insights that will inform their teaching for years to come.
A foundational text for tomorrow's teachers—and a valuable reference for inservice teachers who want to sharpen and update their skills—this important volume will help usher in an era of truly inclusive classrooms where all children learn and thrive. With cutting-edge information on
