Learning Styles and Inclusion
Paul Chapman Publishing
This book is about learning styles and inclusion, but essentially it is about learning, and how to make learning more effective for all learners. To recognise the needs of learners as well as those of teachers, and at the same time appreciate that the inclusive education environment, irrespective of its merits, will present barriers for learners, and for teachers. The message in this book is that learning styles can provide teachers with an opportunity to recognise individual needs, and at the same time recognise the needs of all learners in inclusive and diverse learning environments. This book is therefore suitable for professionals and parents in every country. Following the table of contents, Acknowledgements, and the Introduction, it is divided into three parts.
