Tips and strategies for the beginning special education teacher!

Designed for professionals working in a resource room, self-contained special class, or inclusive setting, this step-by-step guide helps new teachers in special education get their careers off to a positive start and offers experienced teachers supportive information to help improve classroom practice.

Special education experts Roger Pierangelo and George Giuliani review all aspects of special education teaching, from how to get to know your students before school starts to writing end-of-the-year reports. Aligned with the reauthorization of IDEA 2004, this guidebook provides practical guidelines for appropriate classroom design, includes a complete glossary, and examines critical issues such as:

- Gathering information on students' educational history, medical background, and Individual Educational Programs (IEPs)

- Meeting with parents, aides, mainstream teachers, and service providers

- Addressing and evaluating factors that affect learners' performance and adapting the curriculum

- Managing a classroom of students with specific disabilities and applying instructional interventions

- Understanding grading options

Teaching in a Special Education Classroom offers straightforward advice to make the school year more productive for you and your students.
