More Inclusion Strategies That Work! takes Inclusion Strategies That Work! to the next level by linking the best inclusive practices to content-specific curriculum. With the same 'can-do' attitude that made her first book so popular, Karten begins by focusing on the particular strengths of students with certain disabilities, and how teachers can (and should) use these strengths to give students confidence and better footing with unknown concepts. After discussing general best-practices for the inclusive teacher, Karten offers more content-specific strategies, accommodations, and standards-based lessons that will help special needs students access the general curriculum.
