MEDIA REVIEWS
The authors have presented a wide spectrum of examples showing how to integrate instruction with diverse student needs with an easy access to instructional activities for use in lesson and activity planning. I found this book extremely engaging, relevant, and stimulating toward creating new options to teach educationally diverse students in single settings. Based upon "real life" school situations, this book provides fresh ideas applicable to practice while drawing readers' attention to emerging needs of students with special needs. -- Sarup Mathur, clinical associate professor and initial teacher certification coordinator, Special Education Program, Division of Curriculum an
Working with students with multiple disabilities in the same classroom can be both challenging and rewarding. Even though students have varying disabilities, they have many common needs. [This book] provides a wealth of strategies and activities that can be used for varied special needs students. The use of codes letters for each type of disability plus numbered activity codes provides a concise way of relating instructional strategies to disability types. -- Martha Vache, retired high school cross-categorical teacher and former Illinois Council for Exceptional Children Teacher of the Year, Jacksonv
Providing educational services to meet the diverse needs of a group of students within a single disability can be extremely challenging. When a special education teacher provides services through a cross-categorical model-students with many different disabilities-the needs can seem overwhelming. However, in their newest book, noted educators and authors Mary McGrath and Beverly Johns share ideas, activities and strategies for service delivery under this model. From assessment, reading, and math, tobehavior management and professional communications, this book has new and creative options for professionals serving students through a cross-categorical model. Furthermore, these tools are not just for special education teachers. General education staffand paraprofessionals will also find them practical and easily implemented in a variety of programs to support positive behaviors and academic achievement while meeting new educational performance outcomes. -- Mary Beth Schafer, education consultant, Elk River, MN
