Half the students in U.S. schools are experiencing or have experienced trauma, violence, or chronic stress. Much has been written about these students from a therapeutic perspective, especially regarding how to provide them with adequate counseling supports and services. Conversely, little has been written about teaching this population and doing so from a strengths-based perspective. Using real-world examples as well as research-based principles, this book shows how to * Identify inherent assets that students bring to the classroom. * Connect to students’ experiences through instructional planning and delivery. * Foster students’ strengths through the use of predictable routines and structured paired and small-group learning experiences. * Develop family and community partnerships. Experts Debbie Zacarian, Lourdes Alvarez-Ortiz, and Judie Haynes outline a comprehensive, collaborative approach to teaching that focuses on students’ strengths and resiliency. Teaching to Strengths encourages educators to embrace teaching and schoolwide practices that support and enhance the academic and socio-emotional development of students living with trauma, violence, and chronic stress.

Die bisherige heilpädagogische Historiographie ist v.a. eine Geschichte der heilpädagogischen Institutionen. Dies betrifft auch die Geschichte der Entstehung der Anstalten für Menschen mit Idiotie und Kretinismus , was erstaunt, da die praktische Behandlung und Erziehung eine theoretische Durchdringung dieser Phänomene voraussetzte und spätestens seit dem Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts eine intensive Diskussion zu diesen Phänomenen existierte, die dann in die Gründung der ersten heilpädagogischen Anstalten für diese Menschen sowie in die weiteren fachlichen Diskussionen des in Entstehung begriffenen Faches der Heilpädagogik einflossen. Der Autor versucht, diesen Entwicklungsprozess unter vier Perspektiven genauer in den Blick zu nehmen: - Wie entwickelte sich die Beschreibung der Phänomenologie dieser Auffälligkeiten? - Wie entwickelte sich parallel dazu die Terminologie ? - Welche anthropologischen Erklärungsmodelle wurden verwendet? - Welche behandlungstechnischen Fragestellungen resultierten daraus? Das vorliegende Buch soll einerseits eine ideengeschichtliche Ergänzung der bisherigen heilpädagogischen Historiographie darstellen, indem es andererseits die intensivere Beschäftigung mit dem historischen Quellenmaterial anregen möchte, um auf diese Weise zu einer fundierten Darstellung der geschichtlichen Entwicklung des heutigen Faches der Heilpädagogik zu gelangen, dessen fachliches Selbstverständnis sich teilweise deutlich von jenem des 19. Jahrhunderts unterscheidet.

Promoting learning among college students is an elusive challenge, and all the more so when faculty and students come from differing cultures. This comprehensive guide addresses the continuing gaps in our knowledge about the role of culture in learning; and offers an empirically-based framework and model, together with practical strategies, to assist faculty in transforming college teaching for all their students through an understanding of and teaching to their strengths. Recognizing that each student learns in culturally influenced ways, and that each instructor’s teaching is equally influenced by her or his background and experiences, the authors offer an approach by which teachers can progressively learn about culture while they transform their teaching through reflection and the application of new practices that enrich student learning. The key premise of the book is that deepening student learning and increasing retention and graduation rates requires teaching from a strengths based perspective that recognizes the cultural assets that students bring to higher education, and to their own learning. Derived through research and practice, the authors present their Model of Cultural Frameworks in College Teaching and Learning that highlights eight continua towards achieving the transformation of teaching, and developing more culturally balanced and inclusive practices, over time. They present techniques – illustrated by numerous examples and narratives – for building on cultural strengths in teaching; offer tips and strategies for teaching through cultural dilemmas; and provide culturally reflective exercises. This guide is intended for all faculty, faculty developers or administrators in higher education concerned with equitable outcomes in higher education and with ensuring that all student cultural groups learn and graduate at the same rates.

Winner of an American Educational Studies Association Critics’ Choice Award and Choice Magazine’s Outstanding Academic book award, and voted one of Teacher Magazine’s “great books,” Other People’s Children has sold over 150,000 copies since its original hardcover publication. This anniversary paperback edition features a new introduction by Delpit as well as new framing essays by Herbert Kohl and Charles Payne. In a radical analysis of contemporary classrooms, MacArthur Award–winning author Lisa Delpit develops ideas about ways teachers can be better “cultural transmitters” in the classroom, where prejudice, stereotypes, and cultural assumptions breed ineffective education. Delpit suggests that many academic problems attributed to children of color are actually the result of miscommunication, as primarily white teachers and “other people’s children” struggle with the imbalance of power and the dynamics plaguing our system. A new classic among educators, Other People’s Children is a must-read for teachers, administrators, and parents striving to improve the quality of America’s education system.

It is said that everyone has a story to tell, a voice that deserves to be heard. There are many thousands of children with special needs who have long been ignored, rejected and excluded from our schools, our communities, and, sadly, from our Bible classes. We believe that these children are loved deeply and completely by our Lord and that they too are called to come unto Him. This book speaks to the heart and to the head. Teachers and pastors will find inspiration and information, reminding them that God calls us to include all children, no matter the challenge. In addition, the book includes wonderfully practical elements with many ideas that can be easily integrated into any classroom. By combining philosophy and strategies, this book will equip the typical church volunteer teacher to meet the needs of all the children in her classroom.
