Today's classrooms are filled with learners of diverse needs and abilities. This new resource, based on Toby Karten's bestselling Inclusion Strategies That Work!, offers teachers research-based, practical activities for the inclusive classroom in grades 6-8. The author demonstrates that it is indeed possible to simultaneously embrace standards as well as differences in abilities, learning styles, and intelligences. Whether it's about a learning disability, sight impairment, or behavioral challenge, this book addresses teacher frustrations with proactive, effective strategies. Designed to enhance instructional repertoire, this engaging resource illustrates active learning environments that apply across the curriculum and accommodate students' differing needs. This book is divided into eight sections designed to simplify the inclusion process: Reading; Writing; Math; Connecting Students to the Curriculum; Comprehension and Study Skills; Reflective Assessment; Testing and Grading; Creating a Climate for Classroom Acceptance and Teacher-Friendly Inclusion Forms. Educators will also find helpful 'Inclusion Tips' that promote the value of each activity to benefit all students' learning styles.
