Whitney Rapp, Katrina L Arndt

The new generation of teachers needs a new kind of special education textbook—one that focuses on children, not labels. That's why Whitney Rapp & Katrina Arndt developed Teaching Everyone, the first text that fully prepares teachers to see past disability labels and work with all students' individual needs and strengths.

Accessible and forward-thinking, this inclusive special education text will get K-12 teachers ready to work effectively within today's schools and meet the learning needs of a wide range of students. Educators will:

  • Align their teaching with the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Initial Content Standards. Each chapter clearly explains how the content helps students meet specific standards.
  • Discover a truly progressive, inclusive approach to education. Breaking free of a categorical approach to disability, this text reveals how to stop relying on labels to access supports for students—and work with each child as an individual instead.
  • Get comprehensive information in one volume. A thorough primer on inclusive special education, this textbook covers all the critical topics teachers need to know about (see below), for a fraction of the cost of similar textbooks.
  • Learn effective teaching strategies for major academic content areas. Educators will get clear, research-backed strategies for teaching reading, writing, science, math, and social studies—including guidance on keeping students engaged and assessing their progress.
  • Get a deep and personal understanding of student and teacher perspectives. With the case studies and narratives from teachers and people with disabilities, educators will have keen first-hand insights that will inform their teaching for years to come.

A foundational text for tomorrow's teachers; and a valuable reference for inservice teachers who want to sharpen and update their skills; this important volume will help usher in an era of truly inclusive classrooms where all children learn and thrive.
