Creating Inclusive Classrooms: Effective and Reflective Practices
By Spencer J. Salend
Rich in K-12 classroom-based examples, CD-ROM video examples, and case studies of effective inclusive educational practices, this non-categorical text addresses the latest information on inclusion in today's schools. Four principles of effective instruction provide a framework for the text: 1.) all learners and equal access 2.) individual strengths and challenges and diversity 3.) reflective practices and differentiated instruction 4.) and community and collaboration. These principles, woven throughout the chapters, demonstrate that inclusion is not just a government mandate, but a principled philosophy of reflective and effective teaching for individualizing the educational system for all students.
