“Inclusion in Action: Practical Strategies to Modify Your Curriculum” by Nicole Eredics is a book that provides practical guidance and strategies for modifying curriculum to meet the diverse needs of all students, including those with disabilities. The book emphasizes the importance of inclusive education and provides teachers with a step-by-step guide for creating a classroom environment that supports the learning needs of all students. As we discuss this book we will learn how to adapt lesson plans, use technology to support learning, promote positive behavior, and create effective individualized education plans (IEPs). The book is filled with real-life examples and practical tips that can be easily implemented in the classroom. Join us for this book study to learn how to design inclusive learning experience for your students.
