This helpful guide will provide a detailed, focused treatment of collaboration, presented in a practical and easy-to-access format for K-12 teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and staff developers. The book will be designed as a "Collaboration 101" reference for schools who have no experience with collaboration and inclusive settings and want to begin to set it up. In addition, it will provide sufficient practical differentiation and application strategies that districts who already have implemented inclusive classrooms will want this book as a reference to help improve their current programs.
While the goal of this book is not to be so comprehensive that it is daunting to readers, the content will present the most important information in each key area and will do so in a manner that is engaging, informative, and clear. Numerous "copy me" pages will be provided so that districts can use the forms and templates to make increased collaboration an obvious strategy for addressing diverse needs in the inclusive classroom, and real-life case studies will be included to provide context for the concepts.
