Inclusive teacher preparation varies greatly in format and practice, yet programs grapple with the same underlying challenges: which practices work and where do they work. As children with disabilities are increasingly being included in schools, it is essential that guidance is put into place on how best to adapt inclusive practices into the classroom and create new practices based on the cultural context. Global Perspectives on Inclusive Teacher Education summarizes existing research on inclusive practices globally while presenting emerging research and opportunities for cementing change in inclusive teacher education locally, including examples of how inclusive practices are integrated in and adapted to diverse cultural contexts. Covering topics that include critical pedagogy, religious schooling, and teacher education, this publication is designed for curriculum developers, instructional designers, administrators, higher education faculty, educators, policymakers, and students.

Are teachers ready for inclusion? What is appropriate teacher education? Traditional approaches to inclusive education focused on learners with disabilities. Modern approaches, however, conceptualise inclusion in terms of providing educational equity and equality of access for all students within the same regular school system. Future Directions for Inclusive Teacher Education provides a wealth of ideas about how to support teachers to become inclusive through the application of positive training approaches. Written by some of the most influential internationally acknowledged experts in teacher education for inclusion and highly experienced researchers, together the authors provide a plethora of ideas for teacher educators to ensure that their training is pertinent, accessible, and futures-orientated. This up to date and accessible book combines three key areas related to teacher education for inclusion, which provide: A review of what is happening across the globe by offering examples from different regions; Preparation for teachers to support learners with a range of diverse needs including disability, poverty, ethnicity, gender, cultural diversity, learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, sensory impairments and those who are considered gifted and talented; A consideration of systemic approaches, policy, and partnerships, and how these can be better employed in the future. This highly topical text will support all teaching professionals, educational systems, and schools in their transformation of inclusive teacher education.
Pedagogy for Conceptual Thinking and Meaning Equivalence: Emerging Research and Opportunities

Research in neuroscience and brain imaging show that exposure of learners to multi-semiotic problems enhance cognitive control of inter-hemispheric attentional processing in the lateral brain and increase higher-order thinking. Multi-semiotic representations of conceptual meaning are found in most knowledge domains where issues of quantity, structure, space, and change play important roles, including applied sciences and social science. Teaching courses in History and Theory of Architecture to young architecture students with pedagogy for conceptual thinking allows them to connect analysis of historic artifact, identify pattern of design ideas extracted from the precedent, and transfer concepts of good design into their creative design process. Pedagogy for Conceptual Thinking and Meaning Equivalence: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a critical scholarly resource that demonstrates an instructional and assessment methodology that enhances higher-order thinking, deepens comprehension of conceptual content, and improves learning outcomes. Based on the rich literature on word meaning and concept formation in linguistics and semiotics, and in developmental and cognitive psychology, it shows how independent studies in these disciplines converge on the necessary clues for constructing a procedure for the demonstration of mastery of knowledge with equivalence-of-meaning across multiple representations. Featuring a wide range of topics such as curriculum design, learning outcomes, and STEM education, this book is essential for curriculum developers, instructional designers, teachers, administrators, education professionals, academicians, policymakers, and researchers.

Culturally relevant approaches to teaching, such as using music that is culturally relevant to the children in a classroom, has fostered positive social and academic outcomes.

Evidence-Based Approaches to Becoming a Culturally Responsive Teacher: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a critical scholarly resource that delves into the conceptualizations and belief systems that drive culturally relevant teachers to teach and learn in ways that produce favorable outcomes for all children. Additionally, it prompts and promotes scholarship that allows teachers to become critically reflective and conscious of their teacher identity, beliefs of children, educational beliefs, teaching/learning approaches, and personal/professional development. Highlighting topics such as learning outcomes, pedagogy, and teacher preparation, this book is ideal for academicians, researchers, educators, administrators, and education students.

Featuring an array of topics including online learning, social mobility, and teacher preparation, this book is excellent for educational leaders, educational researchers, teachers, academicians, administrators, instructional designers, and teacher preparation programs.
