January 2008 | 128 pages | Corwin
Formerly published by Peytral Publications'Wonderful, powerful, provocative! Flying by the Seat of You Pants causes us to laugh at ourselves and consciously reflect on how to make more appropriate and family-centered decisions. These cartoons are truly a great inservice tool!'ùRichard A. Villa, PresidentBayridge Consortium, Inc.Author, A Guide to Co-Teaching'I cannot imagine anyone in our field reading this book and not chuckling at the hidden truths playfully captured by these cartoons. Giangreco's message, delivered gently with humor and wit, is that we must not let any more time pass before addressing the absurdities that continue to devalue people with disabilities.'ùMichael L. Wehmeyer, DirectorKansas University Center on Developmental DisabilitiesAuthor, Self-Determination'Flying by the Seat of Your Pants teaches about the nuances of inclusive education by showing the absurdities of bad practice and some very heartwarming positive examples as well. A great icebreaker at presentations. It is a wonderful coffee table book, sure to bring out some good chuckles at the brilliant observations of our valiant, yet often imperfect attempts to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities.'ùJacqueline S.

This is a great book and we are including it as recommended reading. It is not comprehensive enough to be our primary text.
