Inviting multiple ways of critically engaging with literature, this text offers a fresh perspective on how to integrate children’s literature into and across the curriculum in effective, purposeful ways. Structured around three “mantras” that build on each other—Enjoy; Dig deeply; Take action—the book is rich with real examples of teachers implementing critical pedagogy. The materials and practical strategies focus on issues that impact children’s lives, building from students’ personal experiences and cultural knowledge to using language to question the everyday world, analyze popular culture and media, understand how power relationships are socially constructed, and consider actions that can be taken to promote social justice.

Written for teachers and teacher educators, each chapter opens with three elements that are closely linked: classroom vignettes showcasing the use of literature and inviting conversation; three key principles elaborating the main theme of the chapter and connecting theory with practice; and related research on the topics and their importance for curriculum.

For undergraduate students taking classes in behavior management and behavior analysis. A popular, practical, and comprehensive guide for educators regarding how to create positive, healthy, and pro-social classroom settings. Long an established and popular text in its field, Behavior Management: A Practical Approach for Educators successfully balances theory and practice to provide readers with a comprehensive manual for creating a positive, pro-social educational environment in which all children can truly learn and enjoy that learning experience. By presenting students with both research and the proven practices that developed from that research, the authors are able to fully explain behavior management from four perspectives-behavioral, psychodynamic, biophysical, and environmental-in straightforward, jargon-free prose. At the same time, real-life case studies, classroom techniques, clear examples, and helpful plan designs allow preservice and inservice teachers to easily bring what they have learned into the classroom. The new tenth edition has been revised and rewritten to improve its usability and readability, and includes recently identified evidence based practices. A new chapter on response-to-intervention, and its relationship to functional behavioral assessment has also been added, as well as updated information on designing individualized behavior plans.

Every learner and every teacher is a unique blend of personal characteristics and background factors that change with time and context, and affect the experience of living and developing. Traditionally, the education of children with disabilities focused on the nature of specific conditions in an attempt to alleviate barriers to learning. The disability, and not the impact of the impairment on participation at school or at home, was emphasised. The current focus is on the strengths, attitudes and positive functioning of children within meaningful contexts. Believe that all can achieve addresses inclusion as the foundation for education in an attempt to celebrate diversity in the classroom, to capitalise on the strengths each learner brings to the learning-teaching dyad, and to welcome every family member as part of the broader classroom community. Believe that all can achieve embraces the core values of the South African Constitution - freedom, dignity and equality. It shares best practice, evidence-based techniques and strategies in an effort to build a deeper understanding of the core issues. Narratives, case studies, screening checklists, engaging illustrations and examples enable the teacher to translate theory into actuality in the classroom. The chapters on challenging behaviours; intellectual, learning, physical and sensory disabilities; autistic spectrum disorders, and medical conditions add a wealth of information and a ready reference. Believe that all can achieve is aimed at students and teachers in the field of inclusive education. Seeing children with disabilities at work has taught me that there are many things they do that I thought they could not do. From this experience I now know that I would have no problem employing a person who is mentally or physically challenged. I ask God to help all of us have a better understanding and to see them as normal. I also ask that inclusion becomes part of many schools because I truly believe we can all benefit from inclusion. A mother of a typically developing child in an inclusive school. Everything must be done in the best interests of the child. Bill of Rights, 1996

R470 R414 Discovery Miles 4 140 Save R56 (12%) Ships in 7 - 10 working days

Freedom, dignity and equality - the core values of the South African Constitution (1996) - provide the foundation for developing inclusive societies. "Inclusive education" is the term used to describe an education system in which all learners, including those with disabilities, are accepted and fully integrated not only educationally, but socially as well. Participation lies at the heart of inclusive education and cannot be restricted to one area of life. What is taught has to be reinforced in all the child's natural environments - the home, the school and the community. Believe that all can achieve explores how the incorporation of learning into real-life contexts forms the basis of meaningful education, and highlights the pivotal role of the teacher in this process. Believe that all can achieve pays specific attention to practical implementation. Photographs and line drawings are used to enhance understanding and application, and the narratives, case studies, screening checklists and examples of best practice in the home, the classroom and the community enable teachers to translate the theory into classroom practice. Believe that all can achieve looks at the child's participation patterns in terms of unique abilities, health status and environmental and personal factors, thus moving the focus from disability to ability; from the child in isolation to the child in the community; from the medical model of health care to the social model of health care. Believe that all can achieve is aimed at practising classroom-based teachers who want to improve their ability to support the increasingly diverse learners in their classrooms, schools and communities. Education students interested in special needs will also find this text particularly beneficial.

Disputable Decisions in Special Education (Paperback): William M. Cruickshank Disputable Decisions in Special Education (Paperback)
William M. Cruickshank
R889 Discovery Miles 8 890 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Written by William M. Cruickshank, one of the pioneers in special education, this collection of thirteen separate essays approaches significant problems in the field from philosophical, administrative, and semiautobiographical points of view, provoking discussion of some seemingly irreconcilable issues and providing some hard-hitting solutions. Mainstreaming and noncategorical education are particular concerns of Cruickshank, as are such separate issues as human sexuality for the disabled, self-contained classes for the mentally retarded and for gifted children, and the role of the disciplines in special education, as well as the fears, the guilt feelings, and the rejection of the handicapped by ""normal"" society. The book is filled with issues that should form the basis of much discussion and argument and, hopefully, solutions.

This is the follow-up book to the Corwin "best seller" Using Equity Audits to Create Equitable and Excellent Schools. Whereas Using Equity Audits was written mainly for school leaders, this book, Equity Audits for Teachers: Creating Equitable and Excellent Classrooms, focuses on teacher and classroom practices. Although school leaders have found the Equity Audits book useful, they have requested more strategies for teachers. They want a companion book they can give teachers and use in teacher study groups. This book is important because in this time of changing demographics and increased diversity, many teachers find that the strategies they have used in the past are successful with only some of the students in their classes. They want and need strategies that will assist them in being successful with all their students. This book will provide teachers with new strategies and skills that will fit diverse needs. The book will also include a discussion of the history of equity auditing in education found in civil rights work, curriculum auditing, and state accountability systems.
