Inclusive Urban Schools
Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey
P.H. Brookes, Sep 1, 2003 - Education - 303 pages
This edited volume provides an overview of inclusive education in urban schools, including demographics, major reform efforts, successes and challenges within urban reform, and the intersection of inclusive education with urban schooling. This practical book explores a wide range of ages, disabilities, and levels of implementation of inclusive practices. Using case studies of schools or districts in major U.S. cities (e.g., Milwaukee, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, Houston), each chapter illustrates important themes in urban inclusive education. Many chapters are written by or with contributions from teachers and principals who have had direct experience with implementing inclusion in an urban school. The book covers many of today's hot topics in education: literacy, peer tutoring, curriculum adaptations, access to the general curriculum, transition, and diversity.
