Der Sammelband 'Inklusiver Englischunterricht' behandelt zentrale Fragen der Unterrichts- und Schulentwicklung und nimmt hier die besonderen Anforderungen heterogener Lerngruppen im Englischunterricht in den Blick. Die Beiträge bündeln die aktuellen Diskussionen aus der Englischdidaktik und erweitern sie durch die Einbindung US-amerikanischer sowie sonder- und inklusionspädagogischer Perspektiven. 'Inklusiver Englischunterricht' vereint damit neben der Vorstellung eines Unterrichtsplanungsmodells zahlreiche Facetten der Konzeptualisierung und Unterrichtsentwicklung im inklusiven Englischunterricht. Die Beiträge zeichnen sich durch ihren breiten innovativen wie auch interdisziplinären Zuschnitt aus. Es werden Entwicklungspotentiale in der Unterrichtsentwicklung im Fach Englisch aufgezeigt und Unklarheiten sowie offene Fragen diskutiert, um so Impulse für eine theoriebasierte und praxisorientierte Unterrichtsentwicklung bereitzustellen. Insgesamt bietet die Publikation eine kritisch-konstruktive Analyse der theoretischen und unterrichtspraktischen Zugänge eines inklusiven Englischunterrichts, der das Ziel verfolgt, allen Schülerinnen und Schülern mit ihren individuellen Lernvoraussetzungen gerecht zu werden. Der damit verbundene Bildungsanspruch des Fremdsprachenunterrichts kann so auf verschiedenen Ebenen für heterogene Lerngruppen umgesetzt werden.

Universal Design is the term used to describe the design of products and environments which can be used by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design. It is not a euphemism for ‘designs for people with a disability’, but really is about designing to include all people, regardless of their age, ability, cultural background or status in life. However it remains the case that many designers and developers fail to understand the need for universal design and lack the skills needed to implement it. This book presents papers from the 3rd International Conference on Universal Design (UD 2016), held in York, UK, in August 2016. The theme of the conference was: learning from the past, designing for the future, and it aimed to bring together policymakers, practitioners and researchers interested in the different strands of universal design to exchange ideas and best practice, review some of the developments in universal design from the last 20 years, and formulate strategies for taking the concept of universal design forward into the future. The book is divided into two sections. Section 1: About Universal Design, and Section 2: Universal Design In Practice. The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves design, from the built environment and tangible products to communication, services and systems.
