Mamlin, Nancy

What tools are in the toolkit of an excellent special educator, and how can teacher preparation programs provide these tools in the most efficient, effective way possible? This practical, clearly written book is grounded in current research and policy as well as the author's extensive experience as a teacher educator. It identifies what special education teachers need to know to work competently with students with a wide variety of learning challenges and disabilities. Chapters present specific guidelines for helping teacher candidates build critical skills for instruction and assessment, get the most out of field placements, and collaborate successfully with other school personnel and with parents. Appended are: (1) Council for Exceptional Children Standards for Professional Practice; (2) Council for Exceptional Children Personnel Preparation Standards; (3) Association of Teacher Educators Standards for Teacher Educators; and (4) Council for Exceptional Children Code of Ethics. A bibliography is included.
