In a series aimed at pre-service and beginning in-service teachers that is meant to boost teacher retention, this volume by Valle (City College, City U. of New York) and Conner (Hunter College, City U. of New York) brings together theory and practice in explaining how and why to implement inclusive education. They discuss inclusion through the frame of disability studies in education, which offers new ways to think about disability as a marker of identity and inclusive practices through a social model. They address the effects of teachers' knowledge, beliefs, and values on practice; misperceptions of disability; problems with the medical model of disability; how to create inclusive classrooms through classroom culture, assessment, and co-teaching; and acknowledging disability as part of diversity.
