Item description for Learning Diversity in Chinese Classroom: Contexts and Practice for Students With Special Needs by Shane N. Phillipson...
Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom provides a Chinese context for meeting the educational requirements of children with special needs. At a time when many of the currently available texts in the area have a general perspective, Asian teachers and students have long felt the need for a text that specifically recognizes the local context. Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom notes that international trends, including those in many Southeast Asian countries are moving toward inclusive education and special needs and includes chapters on giftedness, counseling and behavior management.
Section I describes the context of inclusive education in Asia. Summaries of the special features of the classroom in the region, the conceptions of inclusion and cultural diversity from the perspective of the Asian classroom, and how these are different to the Western classroom are provided.
Section 2 focuses on classroom approaches to meeting the educational and socio-emotional needs of children with special learning needs. The first part is concerned with theoretical underpinnings of the type of need, and the second part describes clear examples of how a teacher can cater for this type of diversity according to subject, including Mathematics, Chinese, English, Information technology (IT) and Arts.
Section 3 widens the perspective and describes a whole school approach to meeting the educational requirements of children with special needs. A systems approach is taken, whereby the success of the inclusive school is dependent on the functioning of a number of interrelated parts. This section draws from recent case studies describing the approaches taken by a number of schools that have been successful in implementing inclusive education.
Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom will appeal to teachers, parents, and health professionals who are working with children with special educational needs.
