With collaboration so vital to today's educational arena, this thorough, well-organized, highly readable text concentrates on the general process of teaching—the basic “how to do it”—to help prospective teachers of children with mild disabilities in grades K–12 learn to work effectively with students, other teachers, and families.

Basing coverage on their extensive experience, the authors present practical, research-based teaching strategies that relate to everyday occurrences in schools; provide motivating, experience-based activities; and offer numerous detailed lesson plans. Their personal, conversational writing style makes even complex concepts accessible, while their extensive coverage gives readers a solid understanding of what works and what doesn't in both special education classrooms and inclusive settings.

For future teachers of elementary school students with mild disabilities and learning problems.
