This is a handbook for regular classroom teachers with students who
don't necessarily qualify for special services, but are in need of
special help nonetheless: Children who suffer from learning
disabilities, ADD, asthma, or allergies. Children who are in foster
care or victims of physical abuse. Children who live in a car or
whose parents sell drugs. Children like these are becoming a
growing part of today's classrooms, and as a regular classroom
teacher, you face the challenging task of seeing that their needs
are met - as well as the needs of your twenty-five other students.
"The Mainstreaming Handbook" proves it is possible.
Deborah Coughlin has never been trained in special education:
she is a classroom teacher retracing the processes and questions
that guided her efforts to advocate and accommodate the
special-needs students in her classroom. Her inquiries educated her
with regard to the laws, procedures, and politics involved in
working with these students. Her inquiries also helped her come to
her own understandings and make her own adjustments when
accommodating varying needs in the classroom. Coughlin shares the
knowledge she gained in this book, explaining: the rationale behind
the federal laws, codes, mainstreaming, and more how federal laws
pertain to students what your legal responsibilities are as a
teacher how you can use this information in the classroom how you
can apply this information to curriculum and theories of teaching
and learning how you can assess and evaluate students - and their
work samples how you can create goals and curriculum based upon
demonstrated need and assessments how you can develop a curricular
program based upon sound literacy practices that accommodates all
needs and children how you can create a schoolwide literacy
program. The bottom line is that you can follow the law,
accommodate all needs, and be an advocate for your students -
without having to resort to poor teaching. "The Mainstreaming
Handbook" shows you how.
