Editorial Reviews

Review

The overall strengths of the chapters are that they cover the topics very thoroughly. It is one of the most comprehensive texts I have seen. All chapters seem current and accurate. The readability level is great. My students really like this text.

 

Georgine G. Steinmiller, Henderson State University

 

The quality of application is fantastic. These strategies are current, accurate, and research based. 

Frank Lilly, Sacramento State

 

I love it!! Quality of application is very good. Nice case studies at the beginning of chapters that enable candidates to begin thinking and making connections to the classroom.

Linda Johnston, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

 

This is the most comprehensive introduction text I have ever reviewed! Praxis and CEC Standard alignment throughout the text are excellent.

Sarah Summy, Western Michigan

 

From the Back Cover

Creating an inclusive classroom means understanding federal legislation as well as national and state standards, but the practical and streamlined seventh edition of Creating Inclusive Classrooms: Effective and Reflective Practices recognizes that it means more than that.

 

It means being reflective about your own teaching so you can better differentiate instruction for ALL of your students.

 

It means collaborating with educators and families to create the most successful educational experience for ALL of your students.

 

More than anything it means taking into account the strengths and challenges of EACH student in today’s diverse classroom, and implementing practical strategies that address disability as well as issues of gender, race, ethnicity, language, socioeconomic status, and family structure.

 

This text goes beyond the typical inclusion text, translating theory and research into practices you can use in your inclusive classroom by illustrating the principles of effective inclusion through classroom scenarios, online footage, and successful strategies.

 

Framework for Inclusive Practice

A framework of four principles of effective inclusion is built into each chapter, demonstrating that inclusion is not just a government mandate but a principled philosophy for reflective and effective teaching for all students.

  • All learners and equal access
  • Individual strengths and challenges and diversity
  • Reflective  practices and differentiated instruction
  • Community and collaboration

 

All Learners Succeed

A focus on differentiation, diversity, collaboration, and effective inclusive practice gives you the guidance you need to create a successful inclusive classroom for ALL of your students. 

  • Four chapters on differentiated instruction provide you with more details and examples on this important subject than any other text in the market.
  • NEW! UDL and You features throughout the text guide you in understanding and implementing the principles of universal design to help all learners access the general education curriculum and succeed in inclusive classrooms.
  • NEW! MyEducationLab notes throughout chapters direct you to online learning experiences and examples of best practices that use video footage and IRIS simulations to illustrate chapter concepts.
  • Updated and Reconsidered! What Would You Do in Today’s Diverse Classroom? features integrate interactive online learning experiences from MyEducationLab into each chapter. These end of chapter features take you online to see inclusive classrooms, then ask you to apply what you’ve learned in the chapter to the situations.

 

Addressing Mandates and Regulations

  • NEW! Up to date coverage of Response to Intervention (RtI) is introduced early in the text and picked up with specific classroom guidance in Chapter 12.  
  • IDEAs to Implement Inclusion features in every chapterapply effective techniques in the book that help you create inclusive classrooms that meet the challenges of the IDEA 2004.
  • Standards Integration in every chapter summary demonstrates where chapter content aligns with CEC, PRAXIS, and INTASC professional standards.

A composition teacher that I had in high school liked to refer to what he called the swim suit corollary, that is writing should be "short enough to be interesting but long enough to cover the subject." This text is the antithesis of that mentality. It is long enough to be boring while short enough not to say anything. I'm not quite sure what category of garments this would match up with, maybe knee length skirts?

The fact remains that while glossing over an impressive array of concepts and ideas the book never goes into enough depth about any of them to present any of them in enough depth to make reading it worthwhile. The entire book could either be summarized into a volume one tenth the size or a separate book could be written as an in depth examination of each chapter. Either one would be preferable to the endless statements that are so generalized it is impossible for them to be of interest.

I needed this for a class. It is a textbook. Certainly helpful, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anybody other than to-be teachers. I don't know that it is any more helpful than any other textbook required by whatever class you'll be taking, so I wouldn't suggest getting this book unless your class requires it. I also rented it from amazon as opposed to purchasing it and I'm SO HAPPY with that decision. For about $20 I had the book for 6 months (I believe) and was able to take notes on whatever I felt I needed from the book (certain charts and information like that were very helpful), but then I could return it, save money, and not have yet another bulky textbook about teaching! A lot of the information will be repetitive from other texts you already have if this isn't for your first teaching course... If this is for your first teaching course, then perhaps this should be the one you buy and keep and rent future ones! The rental program (AND ALSO CHECKING YOUR SCHOOL'S LIBRARY!!! There, you can "rent" them for FREE!) saved me money - which, as a teacher, is clutch!
