"This updated text provides a wide range of instructional tools that are cleverly introduced, well-referenced, and clearly presented. It provides an informative and practical introduction to preservice teachers who are preparing to work with older students. At the same time, it offers an excellent refresher for practicing teachers by providing some new and fresh approaches that can be incorporated into everyday inclusive classrooms. I expect this book to become bookmarked and dog-eared from both initial use and subsequent reference by serious educators." -- Jean Lokerson, Faculty Emerita, School of Education
