Comprehensive. Current. Practical.
Today’s teachers need to be skilled and avid connoisseurs of evidence-based practices in the classroom. Libby Cohen and Loraine J. Spenciner have once again produced a current, comprehensive, practical text for teaching students with mild to moderate disabilities and learning or behavior problems. The authors emphasize the need to consistently assess, plan, organize, implement, and evaluate instruction based on knowledge of the learner, intended learner outcomes, and the curriculum. Diversity and assessment are thoroughly integrated throughout the comprehensive coverage of both traditional and contemporary approaches to teaching. Considerable attention is given to classroom integration of both educational and assistive technologies. With an interactive format and enthusiastic writing style, Teaching Students with Mild and Moderate Disabilities: Research-Based Practices, Second Edition provides prospective teachers of learners with mild to moderate disabilities a full complement of very practical, yet research-based practices and strategies suitable for Kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms.
