The Inclusion Toolkit

The Inclusion Toolkit

August 2011 | 120 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
With downloadable electronic resources

Are you looking for ways to make your classroom more inclusive to children with learning difficulties?

The practical strategies suggested in this book are supported by current research into effective teaching and learning, and the author shows you how inclusion friendly teaching could look in your classroom. The book is aimed at the teacher who wishes to respond to the diversity of learning needs of children that are placed within their mainstream classroom, without teaching each child differently. The advice given for teaching all learners aged 7 to 14 will help you ensure that you are providing well for all your learners that only a very few will need substantially different support.

Rather than focussing on the differences between learners, the common strategies that will enhance the learning of all, based on the common concerns of class teachers working with pupils who have Special Educational Needs, are identified.

Structured around the three areas of memory, motivation, and communication which are key to addressing inclusion friendly teaching, the book covers:

- the memory friendly classroom

- the motivation friendly classroom

- the communication-friendly classroom

Ideal for all classroom teachers working with children aged 7 to 14, and with plenty of supporting material available to download from the SAGE website, which works in tandem with each chapter of the book, this toolkit will make inclusive teaching a reality.

This inspection copy was requested for the PGCE primary education programme, not the Inclusion module. Case studies useful for group discussion. All chapters relevant but I particularly like Chapter 3: The Motivation Friendly Classroom.

A useful book for my MA Dyslexia: Research and Practice and British Dyslexia Association's Approved Teacher Status and Approved Practitioner Status awards. The book provides an introduction to inclusive practice and I particularly use the chapters 2 The Memory Friendly Classroom and Chapter 3: The Motivation Friendly Classroom. Students found the ideas and templates useful and enjoyed using them. The ideas were clearly underpinned by theory.
