Teachers in today’s classrooms work with a diverse group of students, including many who have special education needs, and are often pressed to know a little something about everything. In What Really Works With Exceptional Learners, editors Wendy Murawski and Kathy Lynn Scott present another reader-friendly resource full of experiences and evidence-based practices to empower any educator. The editors and authors examine how special educational needs affect content area instruction, specialized strategies and approaches, and culturally responsive practices and accommodations. Chapters also explore legal issues, behavior challenges, home–school collaboration, and current trends in education. This book is the perfect resource for teachers and administrators who need to know what works … and what doesn’t. A CEC–Corwin co-publication.
