Inclusion in the Primary Classroom is full of practical resources to promote inclusion and disability awareness in the classroom. Bestselling author Margaret Collins provides this resource to help the busy teacher engage all children in inclusive education for older and younger children.
Summary of contents:
Both disabled and non-disabled children need help in recognising and understanding aspects of disability and inclusion. Bestselling author Margaret Collins provides a resource for the busy classroom teacher to engage all children in inclusive education. The book will create positive attitudes and will help change children’s perceived negative feelings.
- that there are different kinds of disabilities
- what they can do to help
- how to interact.
The first section focuses on making sure all pupils with disabilities are given a voice. The second section provides eight units of work that examine areas such as race, speech and language, stereotypes and specific special educational needs.
Author Margaret Collins follows her usual pattern of providing facing pages with differentiated activities for younger and older pupils. This allows a pick-and-mix approach. The book includes teacher notes, Circle Time, extension activities and photocopiable resources (also on CD-Rom).
