Students in special education methods courses often become overwhelmed by the numerous methods and insufficient practice opportunities to apply techniques in actual teaching situations. That won't happen with METHODS AND STRATEGIES FOR TEACHING STUDENTS WITH HIGH INCIDENCE DISABILITIES: A CASE-BASED APPROACH. The book's focused approach presents just five to seven techniques in detail in each chapter. You'll see methods in action in case studies, and practice effective teaching methods and techniques through application activities. You'll also find information to help you address culturally, economically, linguistically, and ethnically diverse learners, among others.
