With inclusion of special education students and mathematics requirements on the rise in today's classrooms, there is no better source than Julie A. Sliva's new book to open the windows to a greater understanding of how to recognize and compensate for the math challenges students face. Its purpose is to provide an expanded framework for K-6 educators to use when teaching math to students who find it difficult to grasp the concepts of math and to meet the ultimate goal of providing standards-based math for all students.
Information and tools provided to help teachers better understand, observe, and include special needs students are:
- Descriptions of characteristics of special needs students and how to "see inside the heads" of the most challenged students
- Strategies and the most recent research useful for teaching students with disabilities
- Instructional techniques, suggestions, and modifications for facilitating learning
- "Look fors" to help clarify, understand, and observe strengths and challenges
- Matrix for matching challenges to strategies
Teaching Inclusive Mathematics to Special Learners K-6 is a guiding perspective emphasizing techniques and strategies designed to address specific difficulties or weaknesses to help the challenged student succeed in math.
- Provide recognizable vignettes of students to help teacher see the connection to students in their own classrooms
- Shows teachers how to recognize and address student difficulties
- Provides a menu of strategies helpful to all students but particularly to learning disabled and "behind" learners
- Examples of specific applications help to clarify for teachers the needs and the solutions.
- Suggestions offer ways to accommodate the needs of special education students along
with all students within the larger class setting
- Checklist of observational "look fors" to help teacher assess individual strengths and weaknesses
