Description - Action Research for Inclusive Education by Felicity Armstrong
Written by a team of practitioner researchers drawn from a wide range of schools and services, this book provides a ground-breaking guide to action research in inclusive education. Chapters address a wide range of real-life experiences by demonstrating how teachers have tackled inequalities in the school environment through action research based on principles of equality and democracy. For example: * The co-ordination of services for minority ethnic groups, including refugee and asylum seeking children; * Peer mediation of access to the literary hour for children with autism; * Homosexuality and action in the inclusion of gay issues; * Developing the role of learning support assistants in pioneering inclusion; * Reducing exclusion of children with challenging behaviour; * Listening to the voices of young people identified as having severe learning difficulties.
Those seeking to empower marginalised individuals and groups through powerful research in action will find this book inspiring and engaging, whether they are undergoing initial teacher education or in-service courses, practitioners on Continuing Professional Development programmes or engaged in action research and teaching in higher education themselves.
