Teaching Everyone: An Introduction to Inclusive Education
Rapp, Whitney H.; Arndt, Katrina L.
Brookes Publishing Company
The new generation of teachers needs a new kind of special education textbook--one that focuses on children, not labels. That's why Whitney Rapp & Katrina Arndt developed "Teaching Everyone", the first text that fully prepares teachers to see past disability labels and work with all students' individual needs and strengths. Accessible and forward-thinking, this introductory text will get K-12 teachers ready to work effectively within today's educational system and meet the learning needs of a wide range of students. Educators will: (1) Align their teaching with the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Initial Content Standards. Each chapter clearly explains how the content helps students meet specific standards; (2) Discover a truly progressive, inclusive approach to education. Breaking free of a categorical approach to disability, this text reveals how to stop relying on labels to access supports for students--and work with each child as an "individual" instead; (3) Get comprehensive information in one volume. Ideal for use as a primary text, this book covers all the critical topics teachers need to know about, for a fraction of the cost of similar textbooks; (4) Learn effective teaching strategies for major academic content areas. Educators will get clear, research-backed strategies for teaching reading, writing, science, math, and social studies--including guidance on keeping students engaged and assessing their progress; and (5) Get a deep and personal understanding of student and teacher perspectives. With the case studies and narratives from teachers and people with disabilities, educators will have keen first-hand insights that will inform their teaching for years to come. A foundational text for tomorrow's teachers--and a valuable reference for inservice teachers who want to sharpen and update their skills--this important volume will help usher in an era of truly inclusive classrooms where all children learn and thrive. This book is divided into three parts: (1) Why Does Teaching Everyone Matter? The History of Special Education; (2) What Does Teaching Everyone Mean? The Educator's Role and Citizenship in the Classroom; and (3) How Will I Teach Everyone? Instructional Strategies by Content Area. [Forewords by Douglas Biklen and Susan Peters.]
