  • Teaching for Inclusion: Eight Principles for Effective and Equitable Practice, with Srikala Naraian, Thursday, 10/5, 4-5:30pm, 305 Russell.


Teaching for Inclusion shows how educators navigate the competing demands of everyday practice with examples from urban, suburban, elementary, and secondary schools. The author offers eight guiding principles that can be used to advance an inclusive pedagogy. These principles permit teachers to both acknowledge and draw from the conditions within which they work, even as they uphold their commitments to equitable schooling for students from historically marginalized groups, particularly students with disabilities. Situated in the everyday realities of classrooms that often include mandated testing requirements and accountability policies, this book addresses multiple dimensions of inclusive practice including curricular decision making, the ”grammar” of schooling, the status of family communities, and the demands of professional roles.”
