- DescriptionThis book provides an easily accessible, user-friendly guide to issues of cultural and linguistic diversity, particularly as they impact the identification, instruction, and assessment of students with special education needs. The authors present practical explanations of important concepts, strategies, and case studies, making information accessible to busy primary and secondary teachers while also drawing on current research. This book includes: - Ready-to-use activities for observation, assessment, and/or planning - Flow charts, tables, and bulleted lists to make key concepts accessible - Guiding questions at the beginning of each chapter to provide teachers with concrete ways to begin reflecting on, and implementing, culturally responsive teaching practices for students within their school communities - A list of key concepts at the beginning and a glossary at the end of the book for easy access to core terms and concepts.
- Author BiographyAmy J. Mazur, Ed.D., lead faculty in bilingual special education and a professor at the George Washington University, has been involved in teacher preparation for over 30 years. She has long been an advocate for the minority student who, as a result of poverty, health and developmental issues, immigrant status, or level of English language acquisition, has not been provided access to appropriate educational service delivery. Dr. Mazur has served as the chair of the Special Education Special Interest Group of the National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE); and she has been a member of the editorial staff of the Division for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Exceptional Learners (DDEL), a division of the Council for Exceptional Children. Throughout her career, Dr. Mazur has presented at national and international conferences, advocating for the rights of minority students as well as the skills needed to prepare professionals to teach to the needs of all students. She lives in Washington, D.C., and is the mother of two children, Arin and Adam, both of whom have been an inspiration to her as she seeks to promote social justice and equity.
