More Education/Integration. A Further Collection of Readings on the Integration of Children with Mental Handicaps into Regular School Systems.
Forest, Marsha, Ed.
This collection of readings contains discussions of current professional debates on the issue of integrating students with disabilities, as well as stories of children's and families' experiences with integration and segregation, descriptions of Canadian school districts that have created model integration programs, and essays about new ways of planning for students. Titles and authors of selected papers include: "A Crime against Childhood--Uniform Curriculum at a Uniform Rate: Mainstreaming Re-examined and Redefined" (Donald Little); "Integration: Being Realistic Isn't Realistic" (Norman Kunc); "With a Little Help from My Friends: The Integration Facilitator at Work" (Annmarie Ruttimann and Marsha Forest); "One System, One Purpose: The Integration of Special and Regular Education" (William Stainback and Susan Stainback); "Keys to Integration: Common Sense Ideas and Hard Work" (Marsha Forest); and "A Two-Way Street: Integration through Peer Support" (Aleda O'Connor). Several articles describe integration in particular regions or school districts in Canada, focusing on Edmonton, Alberta; Mississauga, Ontario; New Brunswick; Northwest Territories; Hamilton-Wentworth, Ontario; and Waterloo, Ontario. Two articles describe the development of support circles to assist in the integration of students with disabilities: "The Circle: Making a Dream Come True" (Annmarie Ruttimann Hoskins) and "Circles" (Judith Snow and Marsha Forest.)
