9780415539180: Enduring Issues In Special Education: Personal Perspectives

Enduring Issues in Special Education is aimed at any course in the undergraduate or graduate special education curriculum that is wholly or partly devoted to a critical examination of current issues in special education. The book organizes 28 chapters into seven sections using familiar structuring principles―what, who, where, how, when, why, and whither. Each section begins with an introduction that provides historical, legal, and theoretical background information and organizing commentary for the chapters that follow. The book’s objective, in addition to informing readers about the issues, is to develop critical thinking skills in the context of special education. Key features include the following:

Dialectic Format – Each of the 28 chapters presents compelling reasons for addressing the issue at hand and specific ways to do so. Because each issue is written from different perspectives and focuses on a variety of aspects, readers are encouraged to weigh the arguments, seek additional information, and come up with synthesized positions of their own.

Organizing Framework – The book’s seven sections have been arranged according to a scheme that is the essence of most investigative reporting and provides a coherent, easy-to-understand framework for readers.

Expertise – All chapters are written by leading scholars who are highly regarded experts in their fields and conclude with suggested readings and discussion questions for additional study.

Review:

"Brilliantly conceptualized and written by leading scholars, Enduring Issues in Special Education addresses the most salient and pressing issues in the field with great clarity and sophistication. The book is historically grounded to provide perspective and boldly addresses what the future may hold. It should be one of the most frequently used resources to inform leaders, practitioners, and researchers as well as those preparing to enter special education. In a word, it’s a masterpiece!"

Donald Deshler, Williamson Family Distinguished Professor of Special Education and Director, Center for Research on Learning, University of Kansas, USA

"This book provides an insightful, timely, and critical account of trends and issues in special education in a rich historical context written by nationally recognized leaders in the field. A must-have resource for aspiring and current professionals in special education."

Antonis Katsiyannis, Alumni Distinguished Professor, Clemson University, USA
