Focus

This text conveys research-based teaching methods, strategies, and assessment approaches that facilitate the learning and behavior of students with mild to moderate disabilities. It describes how to consider students' prior knowledge and experiences, needs, capabilities, interests, and intended outcomes when planning, implementing, and evaluating instruction. Separate chapters focusing on teaching reading, written communication, mathematics, science and social studies, and transition emphasize this philosophy. Several strands appear in each chapter. The first strand focuses on linking research to practice. The research base for instructional strategies is described and connected to teaching practices. The second strand emphasizes diversity. Understanding diversity perspectives is fundamental to teaching. The text describes how educators can ensure equity and fairness in the instruction and assessment of learners. The third strand, using technology, stresses integrating technology into teaching and learning. The text addresses a range of low-tech to high-tech materials, assistive technology devices, and software that can be used when teaching students with disabilities. This strand addresses the concept of universal desi8n, which makes teaching and learning accessible to all students. Finally, there is a strand on linking instruction with assessment. This strand is unique because assessment strategies that can be used to assess both state and national learning standards are described.

The book begins with Part I, "Foundations for Teaching," which provides foundational concepts in designing instruction. Separate chapters in this part discuss preparing to teach children and youth and characteristics of students. Part II, "How Teachers Teach," focuses on generic teaching considerations and on developing and enhancing social skills and promoting positive behaviors. Separate chapters in this part discuss linking instruction with assessment, planning and organizing instruction, methods of teaching, selecting instructional strategies, social skills, positive behaviors, and developing partnerships with educators, families, and paraprofessionals. Part III, "Curriculum Areas," provides separate chapters for teaching in content areas and includes suggestions for curriculum integration. Part IV, "Promoting Independence," is designed to provide students with information regarding the teaching of learning and study skills and the transition from school to work and the community.
