Inclusive Practice in the Primary School adopts a refreshing and insightful approach to support trainee and new teachers to the challenges they face in adopting, developing and refining an inclusive classroom and practice. This book is an essential resource for anyone concerned with the development of reflective, inclusive teachers.
This book is essential for any student completing an inclusive practice module on their degree course.
This book provides an excellent background of information for all teachers in view of the clear expectations from the new SEND Code of Practice and the continuing advance towards full inclusion. In providing a historical background to the medical and social model of disability as well as a clear definition and the discussion of some recent legislation, the foundations are set for the reader to have a greater awareness of where we are at this point in history.
This is an excellent text. The exploration of key issues relating to inclusive practice has supported our taught sessions and has enabled students to engage with complex concepts and develop greater understanding of inclusive practice. They have then applied this to practice during teaching placements. Module assignments have drawn on the ideas explored in the book, supporting students to make links between theory and practice.
This is an excellent read - very informative but easily accessible. There are many thought provoking scenarios to assist discussion.
This is such an important aspect of all teaching now and this book provides background information setting the scene and then develops specific sections enabling the student to develop their understanding which hopefully they will be able to observe and implement when on placement.
A very readable and interesting look at SEND. The book will support the understanding of our students in relation to all aspects of SEND, including pedagogical choices, child development and wider inclusive classroom practices. It is extremely user friendly.
An extremely useful text that offers practical solutions with respect to creating inclusive learning environments. Highly recommended for primary teachers in training and those interested in developing their practice in this area.
This book will be a useful addition to the embedding of a cross curricular theme into teaching of core subjects. Trainee teachers will find it useful to learn from practical examples as well.
Very relevant and accessible for level 5 students. Provides a concise and thorough overview of inclusive practice and can equally be applied to other settings too.
A really useful book for my Early Years students as it explains current policy & legislation, looks at the prime areas of the EYFS and good practice. The tasks, exercises and case studies are useful.
A comprehensive guide to inclusion and will be used as a recommended text.
The book is well structured and written. It is useful as teacher students' handbook where they can have various approaches to inclusion and its needs as a summary. The learning objectives and summaries clarify the information as well as essential examples about cases in real life. The authors have cited the experts in inclusive education. Despite considering inclusion and diversity widely, the book focuses somewhat too much on inclusive education to help learners with special needs.
Interesting read, covers many essential areas with practical suggestions and ideas. Very good
This book provides an up to date view of inclusive practices in schools. it gives some historical background to inclusion as well as guidance for teachers and other professionals to best support children with SEN in mainstream schools. As a behaviour specialist I have found this especially useful when considering how in 'include' more difficult children.
An accessible guide for teachers. Whilst I would not underestimate the many external challenges, facing teachers, seeking to develop a truly inclusive classroom, I really appreciated the key message; start with the child. It reminded me how easily the individual can be lost: replaced by a label. I could definitely see the value of the spiral model, too. Ultimately, I felt the book was empowering as it emphasised the professional expertise of teachers.
timely and well written
A useful book for intending primary practitioners. Good blend of theory , reflection points and practical advice.
an informative and easy to use book
