From the Back Cover
Centered on the most recent, scientifically-based practices, Teaching Strategies for Students with Mild/Moderate Disabilities comprehensively details everything that pre-service teachers need to effectively teach students with mild-to-moderate disabilities.
Features of this text include:
- Scripted lesson plans apply teacher-directed instruction to the chapter content, providing students with models from which to structure and organize their own lesson presentations (Chs. 7, 10-15).
- Characteristics of students with mild/moderate disabilities are discussed, giving students information critical to the selection of appropriate strategies for future clients. Many other methods of instruction books provide little detail on this topic (Ch. 1).
- Teacher Tips in every chapter give students specific ways they can implement the types of instructional strategies being suggested throughout the chapter.
- Every chapter relates implications for diverse populations to the content of the chapter, preparing readers to teach students from diverse backgrounds.

- Key questions, scenarios, summary statements, and review questions are provided in each chapter to help students reflect on, apply, and review the information they have read.
- Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) standards are addressed in every chapter.
