Today’s teachers need to be skilled and avid connoisseurs of evidence-based practices in the classroom. Libby Cohen and Loraine J. Spenciner have once again produced a current, comprehensive, practical text for teaching students with mild to moderate disabilities or those with learning or behavior problems. With an interactive format and enthusiastic writing style, Teaching Students with Mild and Moderate Disabilities: Research-Based Practices, Second Edition provides prospective teachers of learners with mild to moderate disabilities a full complement of very practical, yet research-based practices and strategies suitable for Kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms. The authors emphasize the need to consistently assess, plan, organize, implement, and evaluate instruction based on knowledge of the learner, intended learner outcomes, and the curriculum. Diversity and assessment are thoroughly integrated throughout the comprehensive coverage of both traditional and contemporary approaches to teaching. Considerable attention is given to classroom integration of both educational and assistive technologies. In addition, separate chapters focusing on the curriculum areas (teaching reading, written and spoken communication, mathematics, science and social studies, social skills, and transition) include discussion of national performance standards as well as strategies for helping learners with disabilities access the general education curriculum.  The text’s content flows nicely as several “strands” are woven throughout to solidify the content for readers. These strands include: 1.) Linking research to practice  2.) Cultural and linguistic perspectives  3.) Linking assessment and instruction and  4.) “In Practice” which examines classroom practices in more depth and apply new knowledge. Instructors and students alike will appreciate the depth of new content and material added throughout for a complete and thorough revision.

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.
