133589390 - Creating Inclusive Classrooms: Effective, Differentiated and Reflective Practices, Enhanced Pearson eText with Loose-Leaf Version -- Access Card Package (8th Edition)

978-0-359120-0 Creating effective inclusive classrooms means understanding the role of education in a democratic society and federal legislation, as well as aligning your instruction with national and state standards. But the practical, up-to-date and digital eighth edition of Creating Inclusive Classrooms: Effective, Differentiated and Reflective Practices recognizes that it means more than that. It means using current research related to effective practices in curriculum, instruction, technology, assessment, classroom management, collaboration, and family involvement to foster the learning of all of your students. It means being an evidence-based and reflective educator who continually collects and analyzes evidence to document and enhance the effectiveness of your professional practices, and who thinks critically about your own values and beliefs so you can better differentiate your instruction and promote the learning of all of your students. It means being sensitive and responsive to diversity and individual differences, and collaborating with your students and their families and other educators to create the most successful educational experience for all of your students. More than anything, it means taking into account the unique strengths and challenges of all students in today’s diverse, inclusive classroom and using research-based, universally designed, and culturally responsive practices and assistive and instructional technologies that enhance learning, as well as issues of gender, race, ethnicity, language, socioeconomic status, religion, sexual orientation, and family structure. This digital, accessible and practical text goes beyond the typical inclusion text, by translating the latest theories and research into practices, technologies, and information you can use to address the challenges of implementing inclusion in today’s schools. By incorporating the themes of diversity, collaboration, technology, and research-based, differentiated, universally designed, culturally reponsive and reflective classroom practices into each chapter, the book is consistent with professional standards for preparing teachers to work in today’s diverse classrooms.
