Practical ways of empowering students to encourage engagement in school and education

About the Author

Richard Rose is Professor of Special and Inclusive Education at the University of Northampton, UK. Michael Shevlin is Senior Lecturer in Inclusive Education at Trinity College Dublin in the Republic of Ireland. Richard and Michael have worked together for several years on projects to encourage young people from marginalized groups to voice their opinions and experiences of education. They are currently engaged on Project IRIS (Inclusive Research in Irish Schools), a longitudinal study into special needs provision in Ireland.


The authors of this book have a wealth of experience in research and practical application within the field of inclusion and their passion for and affinity with vulnerable learners is evident... It highlights the need for children's individual experiences and voices, among them the voices of dyslexic learners, to be listened to if the world of school is to be truly inclusive and accessible. Using fascinating case studies from their own and others' research they provide vivid comment from a range of vulnerable learners of all ages, including those with SpLD/dyslexia. The aim of the book is to show how we can encourage these students to participate in the full experience of education... The book offers a broad picture of the school experience of the vulnerable learner and will indeed be a valuable source of ideas and insight for those of us who work with those children who so often seem to end up on the margins. -- Patoss Bulletin
Count me in! by Richard Rose and Michael Shevlin, offers teachers ideas for actively engaging students and making the classroom truly inclusive... It is written in a straightforward style and takes a pragmatic approach to classroom challenges, with plenty of relevant quotes and 14 cases studies illustrating the authors' points. -- Nasen Special
It also sounds an important warning: "Many young people continue to believe that apparent efforts to seek their views remain at a tokenistic level and are conducted as a sop rather than with the sincerity they desire." Buy this book and you may avoid that pitfall. -- Special Children Magazine
