The focus of the book is on effective instructional strategies for students being served in diverse educational settings, with a primary emphasis on those being taught in inclusive educational environments.  In Part I, the text provides basic information on curriculum development and instruction while in Part II, an in-depth discussion of key curricular areas is provided. For educators teaching learning disabled students.

From the Publisher:

The goal of this book is to present proven approaches to both curriculum development and general teaching methods which, when used in tandem, will foster educational success in students with special needs. Although retaining many principles, practices and instructional strategies that have been field tested and proven successful through five previous editions, the Sixth Edition has been significantly revised to reflect many contemporary themes in education.

From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive book is non-categorical in focus, viewing instructional methods and all curricular content areas in the special education field. A valuable tool for teaching students in resource and self-contained classrooms, this book is a current presentation of instructional challenges involving students with special needs. Contemporary themes include inclusion, collaboration, cooperative teaching, strategy training, the importance of phonological awareness, holistic perspectives, home-school collaboration, ethical issues in the education profession, transition, and educational outcomes. Expanded coverage on new research discusses phonological awareness as a basis for successful reading, transition planning and life skills instruction, collaboration with professionals and paraeducators, and effective strategies throughout the curriculum. A second chapter on reading significantly increases the attention given to issues in reading instruction, the phonological basis for successful reading and students with special needs, and the promotion of effective comprehensive instructional strategies. Practical chapters emphasize teaching study skills, developing social skills and self-determination, teaching the creative arts, and teaching science and social studies—in addition to the core academic areas of reading, writing, math, and spoken language. For educators teaching learning disabled students.
