Warum Faulheit und Ablenkung dabei helfen

Die Wissenschaft hat in den letzten Jahrzehnten vieles über den Haufen geworfen, was wir darüber zu wissen glaubten, wie das Gehirn Informationen aufnimmt und verarbeitet. Fest steht: Wir lernen von Geburt an schnell, effizient und automatisch. Weil wir diesen Vorgang unbedingt systematisieren wollen, betrachten wir Vergessen, Schlafen und Tagträumen als hinderlich. Dabei sind sie wertvolle Hilfsmittel, die den Eigenarten unseres Gehirns Rechnung tragen. Benedict Carey erklärt, mit welchen Methoden wir uns Stoffe leichter einprägen und unser problemlösendes Denken verbessern können und wie wir die Potenziale des Unbewussten möglichst effizient nutzen – lernen, ohne nachzudenken. Nebenbei erfahren wir, dass Ablenkung zu Unrecht verteufelt wird, Wiederholung keineswegs immer weiterhilft und es sinnvoll ist, sich zu Themen testen zu lassen, über die man noch gar nichts weiß. Ein äußerst unterhaltsam geschriebenes Buch voller überraschender Erkenntnisse, das zeigt: Lernen muss keine Qual sein.

`Presents interesting and complex arguments about the two education services which run in parallel - mainstream and special.' -ACE Bulletin `a detailed account of the history of special education, present legislation and the rise of the educational psychologist…helpful advice on the politics of statementing, how parents can secure the placement they want, and how to make the best use of current legislation. The helpful glossary of terms and the splendid appendix of useful organisations, independent voluntary and self-help, add much to the value of this thought-provoking book.' - ISIS `This book is essential reading not just for anyone interested in creating inclusive education, but for understanding why it is so difficult to achieve in spite of the goodwill of many.' - Values Into Action `the author relentlessly exposes the underpinning false justifications and dire consequences of segregation for already vulnerable children who have special needs. Evidence is accumulated to show that a radical shift in how we view and how we treat disabled children is long overdue. This book is essential reading not just for anyone interested in creating inclusive education, but for understanding why it is so difficult to achieve in spite of the goodwill of many. There is no other book currently available to compare with this one.' - Educational Psychology in Practice `The author examines a number of key issues but focuses essentially on the right of children to belong to the mainstream. ...the author does us a service in extending the debate on our professional role within an imperfect system with limited resources.' British Journal of Educational Psychology The integration versus segregation debate is the single most important issue in special education. The medical model of disability has proved unhelpful; attention is turning to the principle of normalisation and the social model. The author argues that mainstreaming or inclusive education represents the only appropriate service response to the needs of special children, whatever the nature or degree of their disability. This book challenges the notion of segregation, questioning the relevance of special education to the needs of many groups of pupils, and arguing that the legislation we have is not sufficiently widely used to support pupils' needs effectively.

Special Education in the 21st Century

Issues of Inclusion and Reform

In the late twentieth century, a tidal wave of reform swept over public special education generated by a clamor for the inclusion of special needs students in regular classrooms. These reforms fuel the current debates over their implementation today, which are authoritatively addressed by nineteen distinguished scholars in this insightful volume. Organized into three cohesive sections, it begins with the issues of educational reform and the emerging discourses of disability and integration in the inclusion movement. Respective chapters appraise specific arguments for inclusion and the federal legislation and litigation surrounding and supporting special education. The second part features the thorny issue of assessment, the technological revolution in special education, and the disposition of teacher training. The third section scrutinizes the inclusion of various populations of students with exceptional needs, particularly how teachers can make an easy transition from ideology to educational practice. Special Education in the 21st Century sets the standard for extrapolating future directions by wisely weighing classroom practices for different groups. It thoroughly assesses the technical problems of resources, management, social groupings, instructional design, and the supposition that teachers will automatically change to accommodate an even greater diversity of learners.
