Blended Practices for Teaching Young Children in Inclusive Settings
Grisham-Brown, Jennifer; Hemmeter, Mary Louise; Pretti-Frontczak, Kristie
Brookes Publishing Company
Whether they graduate from general education programs, special education programs, or a program that blends both, most early childhood educators will be required to teach children with and without disabilities--and document that all their students are progressing toward positive outcomes. This essential text is just what teachers need to face these tough challenges in inclusive classrooms. Bridging the gap between special and general education, this resource integrates knowledge about effective practices for teaching young children with and without disabilities into one comprehensive approach. This core text is easy for undergraduate and graduate students to use--it is filled with visual aids such as tables, figures, and sample forms; vignettes and practical examples that illustrate key concepts and guiding principles; helpful summaries for each chapter; and dozens of learning activities that challenge students to test and expand their knowledge. Following a foreword by Marilou Hyson and Pamela Winton, and a preface, the book is divided into the following chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) Designing Quality Curriculum Frameworks; (3) Involving Families in Planning and Implementing Inclusive Programs; (4) Using Assessment Information to Plan What to Teach; (5) Strategies for Monitoring Child Progress; (6) Curriculum Planning; (7) Designing the Learning Environment; (8) Individualizing Instruction to Support Children's Learning; and (9) A Systematic Approach to Preventing and Addressing Challenging Behavior. An index is also included. [This book was published by Brookes Publishing Company.]
