Access to Academics: Planning Instruction for K-12 Classrooms with ELLs takes a different look at language than most other books – it addresses it as something students must use constantly, in a variety of school venues and in different ways depending on the context. The book shows language as vital to content access and thereby academic achievement, but, more importantly, it also provides step-by-step instructions explaining how to help students acquire the language they need. Although the main emphasis is on English language learners (ELLs), the term “diverse learners” used throughout also encompasses the great variety in any classroom of student backgrounds, abilities, needs, and interests.

Despite the prevalence of students with disabilities in the general education classroom, few teachers receive training on how to meet these students’ needs or how to navigate the legally mandated processes enumerated in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). What is their role? What are their responsibilities? What are the roles and rights of parents? And what must all teachers do to ensure that students with disabilities and other special needs receive the quality education they’re entitled to? In this practical reference, David F. Bateman—bestselling author of A Principal’s Guide to Special Education—and special education administrator Jenifer L. Cline clarify what general education teachers need to know about special education law and processes and provide a guide to instructional best practices for the inclusive classroom. Topics covered include * The pre-referral, referral, and evaluation processes * Individualized education programs (IEPs) and the parties involved * Accommodations for students who do not quality for special education, including those covered by Section 504 * Transition from preK to K–12 and from high school to postschool life * Classroom management and student behavior * Educational frameworks, instructional strategies, and service delivery options * Assessment, grades, graduation, and diplomas The breadth of coverage in this book, along with its practical examples, action steps, and appendixes covering key terms and definitions will provide the foundation all K–12 teachers need to successfully instruct and support students receiving special education services. It’s an indispensable resource for every general education classroom.

Phonics programs may go in and out of fashion in mainstream education, but there's always an ongoing need for them -- especially among special needs students who require visual pegs to hold onto as they climb the literacy ladder. The Angling for Words instructional program is one that teachers across the country have depended on for many years...because it works! Developed by remedial language therapist Carolyn Bowen and other talented educators, the program is carefully designed to combine auditory, tactile, and motor channels. Based on classic Orton-Gillingham procedures, it offers students with learning difficulties a step-by-step approach for learning efficient reading and spelling skills. The key elements of the program are the Basic Angling Workbook, which focuses on building beginning decoding skills, and the Study Book and Teacher's Line, both appropriate for use with students who have skill levels of 4th grade and up. The Angling Workbook gives students added opportunities to apply the decoding skills they are learning in the Study Book. Angling for Words is an effective phonics program for elementary students and ESL and adult literacy classes. This versatile component (tan cover) of the Angling program is designed for any student needing phonetic decoding and spelling training controlled to basic vocabulary. Primary children with reading difficulties, students in learning disabilities programs, and participants in adult literacy instruction have all benefited from its use in one-to-one or small group settings. It can be used either as a sequentially controlled instructional program or as a supplement to other programs. The teacher's manual incorporates the entirestudent text with instructions for each page. An Appendix includes a phonetic survey for pre- or post- testing, a sample lesson plan, and progress charts to display mastered phonograms in reading and in spelling for student and teacher reference.

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY! Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder
