Strategies for Inclusion, Fourth Edition With HKPropel Access, facilitates a smooth transition and continues to raise the bar for successful integration of students with disabilities into general and adapted physical education settings. Its practical and easy-to-implement planning and assessment strategies make this a complete resource for current and future K-12 PE teachers.
The fourth edition provides background information and a clear road map for successful inclusion of students with disabilities in physical education settings. It offers 38 teachable units, complete with assessment tools and step-by-step guidelines for curriculum planning. Each unit contains an assessment rubric and provides ideas on how to incorporate objectives from the student’s individualized education plan (IEP). Adaptations and accommodations are also included in each unit and are divided into the categories of environment, equipment, instruction, and rules. The inclusive curriculum includes the following:
- 10 elementary units for basic skills such as balance and object control
- 11 sport units for team sports such as basketball and golf
- 5 health and fitness units, including swimming and weight training
- 12 recreation and life skills units such as paddleboarding and dancing
Each chapter of the text includes an opening scenario designed to help the reader explore their thoughts and feelings regarding various aspects of inclusion and adapted physical education. Teaching tips and ready-to-use forms, charts, and strategies are included, as well as a brand-new chapter on interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaborative practices to promote student engagement. In places where the SHAPE America National Standards for K-12 Physical Education are mentioned, they have been updated to the latest revision of the standards.
In addition, the fourth edition now offers five ready-to-use PowerPoint training modules, delivered in HKPropel, that instructors or administrators can use for in-service workshops for their students or staff. Teachers will be empowered to advocate for themselves and their students with disabilities to receive the necessary supports that enable all students to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. The training module topics include
- universal design for learning,
- Lieberman-Brian Inclusion Rating Scale for Physical Education (LIRSPE) intervention,
- paraeducator training, and
- peer training.
Strategies for Inclusion offers the most up-to-date and useful strategies to include children with disabilities in physical education classes. With it, physical and adapted physical educators will help empower all students with the knowledge that anything is possible and that their goals can be achieved through understanding, cooperation, and creativity.
