When the barriers created by traditional instruction are removed, all students are capable of helping each other to learn and grow - regardless of their background or cognitive ability. With this practical resource, instructors will learn how to capitalize on students' individual differences and promote the academic and social growth of every learner in the inclusive classroom. A wealth of research-based teaching strategies, sample lesson plans, illustrative case studies, and hands-on instructional materials are provided to help educators meet their students' varying educational and psychological needs. Throughout this book, internationally recognized education experts detail the powerful strategies made possible by cooperative/collaborative learning and provide practical guidelines for adapting curricula and instructional methods, developing peer-mediated teaching systems, organizing peer mediation programs, facilitating friendships and peer connections, and enhancing creative thinking among students and colleagues. This fundamental reference will help educators, administrators, and classroom support personnel provide each student in the inclusive classroom with a quality education and the experience they need to build successful careers, communities, friendships, and families.
