A Final Note

"One of the many things I appreciate about this edition of Joyful Learning is the range of its examples. Regardless of grade level or subject area, all K-12 teachers will find relevant gems here. Alice and Paula provide lots of details to help readers figure out how to make the various approaches work, but their recommendations are descriptive, rather than prescriptive and grounded in an abiding respect for teachers as decision makers. I love that these authors insist on the presumption of professional competence for adults just as they do for young people with and without disabilities."

Kelly Chandler-Olcott, Associate Dean for Research
Syracuse University, School of Education

"This book is a gold mine of strategies to increase engagement, participation, and JOY for all students in inclusive classrooms. The examples and implementation suggestions make is easy for teachers K-12 to select and apply strategies that make learning meaningful and fun."

Barb Gruber, Ph.D., Inclusion Facilitator
Maryland Coalition for Inclusive Education

"This book is one of few that provides activities for practice in a classroom moving towards inclusivity.  It is well-grounded in a clear conception of inclusivity that allows for these activities to be enacted with efficacy.?"

Sarah L. Schlessinger, Assistant Professor of Adolescent Inclusive Education
Long Island University - Brooklyn Campus

"Joyful Learning is so easy to use—like a comfy cookbook of idea-generators for when a teacher needs fresh and new ideas for specific purposes."

Melissa Sherfinski, Assistant Professor of Elementary and Early Childhood Education
West Virginia University
