In response to recent trends and legislation promoting inclusive instruction and access to the general education curriculum, many schools have implemented "co-teaching" (Cook & Friend, 1995) as a means for promoting effective instruction in inclusive classrooms. Implemented to provide support for increasing the inclusion of students with disabilities, co-teaching usually consists of one general education teacher paired with one special education teacher in an inclusive classroom of general education and special education students (e.g., Mastropieri & Scruggs, 2006, chapter 2). Bauwens, Hourcade, and Friend (1989); Cook and Friend (1995); and Friend (2002) discussed criteria needed for an effective co-teaching relationship. A number of co-teac...

Exceptional Children Book Description :

Exceptional Children: Integrating Research and Teaching provides a com prehensive introduction to the constantly changing area of special educa tion. The book is research-based, and its title reflects our opinion regarding the important link between research and classroom practice. There is one feature of Exceptional Children: Integrating Research and Teaching that warrants attention and perhaps justification; it was written specifically to address the graduate student or sophisticated undergraduate student mar ket. As such, the book is written at a higher level and with a greater concept density than typical introductory special education texts. We feel that this type of book is very much needed and will be received favorably by the special educatio...
