Disability and Teaching (Paperback)

£33.99
Usually despatched in 7-10 days.

Synopsis

Disability and Teaching highlights issues of disability in K-12 schooling faced by teachers, who

are increasingly accountable for the achievement of all students regardless of the labels

assigned to them. It is designed to engage prospective and practicing teachers in examining their

personal theories and beliefs about disability and education.





Part I offers four case studies dealing with issues such as inclusion, over-representation in

special education, teacher assumptions and biases, and the struggles of novice teachers. These

cases illustrate the need to understand disability and teaching within the contexts of school,

community, and the broader society and in relation to other contemporary issues facing teachers.

Each is followed by space for readers to write their own reactions and reflections, educators'

dialogue about the case, space for readers' reactions to the educators' dialogue, a summary, and

additional questions. Part II presents public arguments representing different views about the

topic: conservative, liberal-progressive, and disability centered. Part III situates the authors'

personal views within the growing field of Disability Studies in education and provides exercises

for further reflection and a list of resources.





Disability and Teaching is the 8th volume in the Reflective Teaching and the Social Conditions of

Schooling Series, edited by Daniel P. Liston and Kenneth M. Zeichner. This series of small,

accessible, interactive texts introduces the notion of teacher reflection and develops it in relation

to the social conditions of schooling. Each text focuses on a specific issue or content area in

relation to teaching and follows the same format. Books in this series are appropriate for teacher

education courses across the curriculum.

Susan L. Gabel is a Professor of Disability and Equity in Education at the National College of Education, Chicago, IL, USA. David John Connor is an Associate Professor of Special Education/Learning Disabilities at Hunter College, New York, NY, USA.
