This review of five recent (1992 and 1993) books and journal articles is intended to illuminate characteristics of inclusive schools. The review defines inclusion as more than merely regular class placement for students with disabilities, to include a philosophy which celebrates diversity and the provision of a continuum of educational options. The following publications are reviewed: "Curriculum Considerations in Inclusive Classrooms" (Susan Stainback and William Stainback); "Inclusive Practices Transform Special Education in the 1990s" (Richard Schattman and Jeff Benay); "Helping Teachers Manage the Inclusive Classroom" (Barbara Ayres and Luanna H. Meyer); "Co-Teaching: An Overview of the Past, a Glimpse at the Present, and Considerations for the Future" (Marilyn Friend, Monica Reisling, and Lynne Cook); and "Co-Assessment of Special Learners: A Call for Special and General Education To Unite" (Joyce S. Choate). (DB)
