Book Description

High Leverage Practices for Inclusive Classrooms, Second Edition offers a set of practices that are integral to the support of student learning, and that can be systematically taught, learned, and implemented by those entering the teaching profession. In this second edition, chapters have been fully updated to reflect changes in the field since its original publication, and feature all new examples illustrating the use of HLPs and incorporating culturally responsive practices. Focused primarily on Tiers 1 and 2—or work that mostly occurs with students with mild to moderate disabilities in general education classrooms—this powerful, research-based resource provides rich, practical information highly suitable for teachers, and additionally useful for teacher educators and teacher preparation programs.
