Disability Studies and the Inclusive Classroom is a core textbook that integrates knowledge and practice from the fields of disability studies and special education. The second edition has been fully revised and updated throughout to include stronger connections between race, class, sexual orientation, gender, and disability to emphasize intersecting identities and experiences; stronger emphasis on curriculum and teaching rather than on attitudes toward disability; and updates to current events, cultural references, resources, research literature, laws, and policies.
"Baglieri deftly weaves the broad concept of dis/abilities in society, schools, and the curriculum into a powerful work that helps all educators make sense of what can and should be done for all students. Without a doubt, this volume makes a significant contribution to the field of inclusive education."
—Dr. David J. Connor, Professor, Hunter College, and co-author of A Child, a Family, a School, a Community: A Tale of Inclusive Education
"Baglieri accomplishes the rare feat of deftly combining a most sophisticated and compelling understanding of inclusive education with deeply informed and eminently practical approaches for its effective implementation—an indispensable resource for all educators."
—Professor Deborah Gallagher, PhD, University of Northern Iowa
