Strategies for Diverse Classrooms

Additional resources:


January 2017 | 680 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

To ensure that all students receive quality instruction, Teaching Students with High-Incidence Disabilities prepares preservice teachers to teach students with learning disabilities, emotional behavioral disorders, intellectual disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity, and high functioning autism.  Focusing on research-based instructional strategies, Mary Anne Prater gives explicit instructions and strategies for teaching students with special needs, and includes examples throughout in the form of scripted lesson plans. Real-world classrooms are brought into focus through teacher tips, embedded case studies, and technology spotlights to enhance student learning. The book also emphasizes diversity, with a section in each chapter devoted to exploring how instructional strategies can be modified to accommodate diverse exceptional students.
