    Collaborate, Communicate, and Differentiate! - How to Increase Student Learning in Today’s Diverse Schools


    This helpful guide will provide a detailed, focused treatment of collaboration, presented in a practical and easy-to-access format for K-12 teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and staff developers. The book will be designed as a “Collaboration 101” reference for schools who have no experience with collaboration and inclusive settings and want to begin to set it up. In addition, it will provide sufficient practical differentiation and application strategies that districts who already have implemented inclusive classrooms will want this book as a reference to help improve their current programs.

    While the goal of this book is not to be so comprehensive that it is daunting to readers, the content will present the most important information in each key area and will do so in a manner that is engaging, informative, and clear. Numerous “copy me” pages will be provided so that districts can use the forms and templates to make increased collaboration an obvious strategy for addressing diverse needs in the inclusive classroom, and real-life case studies will be included to provide context for the concepts.

    This hands-on, practical, teacher-friendly approach to preventing as well as responding to the acting-out behaviors of students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) includes detailed procedures for general and special education teachers.

Of special importance in this book is the attention paid to how challenging behaviors of students with ASD are related to the disability, specifically the role of sensory and medical issues. Based on a well-researched model, the methods in this book have been field-tested.

    The Inclusion Toolkit


    With downloadable electronic resources

    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 well for all your learners that only a very few will need substantially different support.

    Rather than focussing on the differences between learners, the common strategies that will enhance the learning of all, based on the common concerns of class teachers working with pupils who have Special Educational Needs, are identified.

    Structured around the three areas of memory, motivation, and communication which are key 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.
