Putnam, JoAnne W., Ed.
This book is intended to assist educators to meet the needs of a diverse population of children with varying cognitive abilities; developmental and learning disabilities; sensory impairments; and different cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Putnam); "Curricular and Instructional Adaptations for Including Students with Disabilities in Cooperative Groups" (Ann Nevin); "Redefining the Role of the Special Educator and Other Support Personnel" (Richard A. Villa and Jacqueline S. Thousand); "Cooperative Classroom Management: Student Needs and Fairness in the Regular Classroom" (Luanna H. Meyer and Leah A. Henry); "Supporting Young Children's Development through Cooperative Activities" (JoAnne W. Putnam and Loraine J. Spenciner); "Cooperative Learning and Cultural Diversity: Building Caring Communities in the Cooperative Classroom" (Dilafruz R. Williams); and "Innovative Classroom Programs for Full Inclusion" (Jo Jakupcak). Each chapter includes references. (DB)
