Responding to the Needs of Diverse Learners

Patricia O'Connor

Reading List

This short bibliography is a reading list that can be followed over the course of one school year. Each book is excellent at providing evidence and support that can be used to defend our collective teaching mission. Each book has an extensive bibliography that can become your life's work should you so choose. I promise that you will find no shortage of reliable support for providing an inclusive education to all of our children.
