Quantity in Basket: None
©2006. Edited by Diane M. Browder, Ph.D. and Fred Spooner, Ph.D., with invited contributors. The editors and contributors, all experienced professionals in the field of special education, have written this unique resource guide to address the education of students with severe cognitive disabilities in the content areas of language arts, math, and science. The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004 require that all students be given access to the general curriculum. Using research and best practice examples, the authors show how every student can be included and how teaching content while individualizing lesson plans makes the curriculum accessible to everyone. Chapters include: promoting access to the general curriculum; building literacy at presymbolic and early symbolic levels; from sight words to emerging literacy; learning to read (phonics and fluency); enhancing numeracy; addressing math standards and functional math; science standards and functional skills; and developing math and science skills in general education contexts. This handbook provides information on setting appropriate expectations for students, fostering a cooperative learning environment, and maintaining state standards. Sample adapted lesson plans highlight the objectives and structure of the lesson, related activities, and the plan for inclusion, which will aid educators in the creation of a learning environment that all students will benefit from. Filled with guidelines, case examples, and key instructional procedures, this valuable handbook will help educators and other professionals include and teach students with cognitive disabilities in a variety of settings.
