Are you looking for ways to make your classroom more inclusive to children with learning difficulties?
The practical strategies suggested in this book are supported by current research into effective teaching and learning, and the author shows you how inclusion friendly teaching could look in your classroom. The book is aimed at the teacher who wishes to respond to the diversity of learning needs of children that are placed within their mainstream classroom, without teaching each child differently. The advice given for teaching all learners aged 7 to 14 will help you ensure that you are providing so well for all your learners that only a very few will need substantially different support.
Rather than focusing on the differences between learners, the common strategies that will enhance the learning of all, based on the common concerns of classroom teachers working with pupils who have special educational needs, are identified.
Structured around the three areas of memory, motivation, and communication which are the keys to addressing inclusion friendly teaching, the book covers:
- the memory-friendly classroom
- the motivation-friendly classroom
- the communication-friendly classroom
Ideal for all classroom teachers working with children aged 7 to 14, and with plenty of supporting material available to download from the SAGE website, which works in tandem with each chapter of the book, this toolkit will make inclusive teaching a reality.
