Teaching Students Who are Exceptional, Diverse, and at Risk in the General Education Classroom

9780137070718: Teaching Students Who are Exceptional, Diverse, and at Risk in the General Education Classroom

Based on the belief that even small accommodations make a difference in the success of students with disabilities, this text provides classroom teachers with the knowledge, tools, and practical strategies that will empower them to spark learning in every student. From students with disabilities, culturally diverse students, and students with limited English proficiency to economically disadvantaged students this text provides teachers with the tools they need in their diverse classrooms. Revised to reflect the most current research, terminology and teaching practices, the strength of this text continues to be its numerous learning activities and sample lessons addressing both elementary and secondary classrooms. This edition continues its very popular multi- chapter unit on curriculum adaptations with specific strategies and activities for teaching reading, writing, and mathematics. With a new chapter on Response to Intervention and Progress Monitoring and full integration of the RTI framework, and the increase emphasis on middle and secondary students, this text continues its reign as an outstanding resource for all general education teachers.

“The style is motivating, using plenty of examples and anecdotes about teachers.”

 ~ Audrey Edwards, Eastern Illinois University


“My favorite sections were the Tips for Teachers, the information found in these little sections were amazing and easy to locate. [...]  I enjoyed the interviews at the beginning of the chapter.  These were real stories about real teachers experiencing real problems and I felt that this too would help motivate students to read the chapter to see how these situations could be solved.”

 ~ Josephine Fritts, Ozarks Technical Community College


 “The 60 Second Lesson’s content is excellent! [...] Besides the up-to-date content and the enjoyable and inviting conversational tone of the writing, the strong link provided between student characteristics and appropriate instructional strategies, the chapter opening and closing features, the number of resources shared for further exploration of topics, and the numerous and varied teaching supplements combine to make the Vaughn text excellent!”

~ Maureen Griffin, University of Wisconsin – Whitewater


 “This textbook is well-written, very comprehensive, and grounded in research that I can respect and use as an educator.”

~ Philip J. Lanasa III, Cameron University


“I like this text best, because of its comprehensiveness and practical applications.”

~ Darcy Miller, Washington State University 


“I especially like the inclusion of the chapters regarding teaching skill and content areas. [...] I really LOVED all of the recurring boxed features. I feel that the Vaughn, Bos, & Schumm text includes additional valuable features that may help facilitate deeper student understanding and future application of the content in the field.”

~ Beth Anne Pruitt, Eastern Kentucky University
