Drawing upon their years of research and personal experience, contributors to this text provide educators with useful guidelines on teaching language arts, math, and science to students with significant disabilities. Unlike other, more theoretical volumes, this book offers practical suggestions for providing access to the general curriculum. Some of the best known researchers in curriculum and instruction, including Debby Houston, Michael Wehmeyer, June Downing, Terri Ward, Belva Collins, Claudia Flowers, Karena Cooper-Duffy and Jacqui Kearns, weigh in on this important subject. Geared toward primary and secondary school teachers, this book focuses on what to teach and how to teach. Moreover, it describes how to address academic content standards.
