Product Overview

Quality inclusive education is a goal and a requirement for educators today. This second edition of The Inclusive Education Checklist is an indispensable resource for educators committed to creating and sustaining truly inclusive educational environments that achieve the goals of access, participation, supports, and success for all children.

Authors Richard Villa and Jacqueline Thousand, who have spent over four decades advocating for and supporting school communities to initiate, implement, and sustain inclusive education best practices, synthesize their experience and extensive research to provide educators with an insightful and practical tool for implementing, assessing, and optimizing inclusive education.

The book offers a checklist of 15 key inclusive education best practices that together comprise quality inclusive education. Each chapter details an individual best practice and provides a list of best practice indicators that deconstruct the best practice. Readers are instructed to rate the degree to which each indicator occurs in their school in a scoring box to the left of the indicator. Instructions are provided for how to calculate and interpret the total score, mean score, and range of scores.

This updated edition includes new content on teaching in virtual and blended environments, social and emotional learning, restorative justice, professional learning and coaching, and decision-making processes for determining where, when, and how to address IEP goals for students with extensive support needs.
