Inclusive Primary Teaching

A critical approach to equality and special educational needs and disability (Second Edition)

By Janet Goepel, Helen Childerhouse, Sheila Sharpe

This is an invaluable and fully updated text on inclusive practice for primary trainees and teachers and for those in the UK working towards the National Award SEN Co-ordination. The book provides an equality- and child-centered approach to inclusion, combining both theory and practice while promoting critical thinking about the complex issues involved. Scenarios are used as the basis for unpicking major topics and provide opportunities for learning in context, while questions and reflections encourage deep thinking about key learning points. This second edition has been fully revised throughout and now includes: full reference to the UK's new Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (2014), as well as the Children and Families Act (2014) and Behaviour2Learn * two new chapters on understanding learners who are vulnerable and understanding learners with communication difficulties * extended thinking activities and extended reflections to support M-level study * an improved organization with emphasis on the UK's national priorities. *** ''Readily accessible writing style and clearly structured chapters, using visual spidergrams, are suited to the needs of our trainees - particularly highlighting implications for their own practice. Good distillation of current practice underpinned by evidence from educational theory and policy; right up to date. Concise summaries in the form of taking it further - with descriptions of the references to encourage further investigation/clarify information and provide greater depth.'' -- Karen Taylor Burge, U. of East London *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Critical Teaching) [Subject: Education]
