Students in a typical special education methods course are often presented with and overwhelmed by myriad techniques and methods leaving them with insufficient opportunities to practice and reflect on covered practices. In addition, students are often uncertain how to apply the techniques in actual teaching situations. METHODS AND STRATEGIES FOR TEACHING STUDENTS WITH MILD DISABILITIES: A Case-Based Approach uses a more focused and integrated approach than other texts in the market. Each chapter presents a limited number of techniques (5 to 7) in detail. Boyle and Scanlon demonstrate effective teaching methods and techniques through application activities, anchor content around case studies, and offer an overview of other techniques not covered in detail. The case study approach is a distinctive feature of this program with both text case studies and video case studies in each chapter. Information addressing culturally, economically, linguistically, and ethnically diverse learners, among others, is integrated throughout the text as well.
