  • NEW! "Real Lives and Exceptionalities" DVD comes with every copy of the text--This remarkable new DVD includes video footage of individuals featured in the chapter opening vignettes, a hallmark feature of Exceptional Lives. A total of five real people from Chapter 2, Chapter 6, Chapter 12, and Chapter 16, are featured in five segments that cover aspects of school, families, and community. Additionally, an extraordinary segment, "Beyond School" highlights nine individuals as they pursue life outside of school, in the workplace, enjoying hobbies, and engaging in community interests, demonstrating the lifelong goal of purposeful and productive lives. These individuals represent a successful transitioning into adulthood and show the myriad of ways that individuals with exceptionalities live active, exciting lives.

    • Readers will construct in "their own voice" a reflection on the impact that they and others can make, challenging them to think hard about what should or could be done and what they would do as a teacher using the techniques described, under the laws that govern the education system, and pursuant to the recommended values.

    • Gives students hands-on ways to implement appropriate strategies in the every day classroom.
  • "Diversity Tips"--Guided by the need for sensitivity to our diverse populations and critical issues in addressing educastional strategies, these "tips" help prepare pre-service teachers to consider students' diverse backgrounds (their language, gender, ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, geography, and exceptionality/ability) when planning curriculum, instruction, and evaluation and when collaborating with families and other service providers.
