This book will quickly become the must-have resource for all special and general educators. From cover to cover, Karten addresses all aspects of the inclusive environment, beginning with the inclusive mind-set and working through environment, structure, content, and most important, the idiosyncratic adolescent. The online resources throughout this easy-to-read text greatly enhance its value today as well as its longevity into the future. -- Harold M. Tarriff, Director of Special Services An exceptional work of art. This book should be the teacher's newest bible on inclusion. -- Kristina Moody, Special Education Assistant, Graduate Student Wow! What a wonderful resource for all teachers. This book combines theory and practical strategies that can easily be implemented in anyone's classroom. Kudos to the author. -- Sarah N. Miller, Special Education Teacher
