For the Inclusion/Mainstreaming course. Born of the author's extensive experience in preparing teachers, this accessible, categorical inclusion text offers a practical perspective on inclusion in today's multicultural, multilingual, and broadly diverse classrooms. The author offers this perspective while simultaneously challenging pre-service and in-service teachers with a relatively new way of thinking about teaching: universal design in education. A thorough discussion of the foundations of inclusion and of the law at the beginning of the text is followed by specific disability chapters, methods chapters, and content area chapters. Each of the chapters (except for the foundational chapters in Part I) contain practical strategies and methods for the preservice teacher in all age groups.

Full of insights for any organizational scholar still hoping to make a difference for a better world, this greatly illuminating book examines what it takes to intervene critically but positively in the mainstream of a globalized academic life, and be able to survive such interventions. The contributors offer tried and tested approaches neither aggressive nor confrontational allowing them to bring inclusion and multiplicity to their teaching and their research while carving spaces for action and resistance to hegemonic academic practices. An innovative must read and much needed text! Marta B. Calás, University of Massachusetts, US This important book should be required reading for all management educators. Starting from an incisive and timely critique of the increasingly standardized global academic system, the editors set out to offer an inclusive vision of what education can be. A rich array of contributors from diverse cultures and perspectives offer experiences and ideas about the practice of inclusive education and, perhaps more importantly, offer some hope that the logic of standardization is not immutable. Christopher Grey, University of Warwick, UK This innovative book explores how inclusion can be enhanced in academia by considering the strategic work of expert academics from around the world. It offers a new look at academic work through the accounts of passionate practitioners who have each, in their own ways, made inclusion work. Making Inclusion Work exemplifies how academics can meaningfully engage in inclusive practices in their everyday work. Scholars around the world share their experiences of intervening in curriculum development, teaching and research, and reflect on practices that have worked in local contexts. The authors discuss the process for reaching greater inclusion which begins with an honest appraisal of current local practice. Reflective developers in academic institutions and educational administration will appreciate the unique insights provided by this book. Students interested in diversity and inclusion, academic practices, and autobiographical action-oriented research will also find the contributions invaluable.
