Basing coverage on their extensive experience, the authors present practical, research-based teaching strategies that relate to everyday occurrences in schools; provide motivating, experience-based activities; and offer numerous detailed lesson plans. Their personal, conversational writing style makes even complex concepts accessible, while their extensive coverage gives readers a solid understanding of what works and what doesn't in both special education classrooms and inclusive settings.
