This text enhances the fields of early childhood education, early childhood special education, and the “blended” field of both by assisting in the preparation of professionals for inclusive teaching and learning environments. The goal of the text is to help teachers meet the needs of ALL young children within the primary inclusive classroom, and it accomplishes this in two ways: it provides a strong foundation of Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education as preparation for reaching a wide variety of young learners, and it then presents proven methods for adapting and modifying content area curricula. This text, with chapters contributed by leading experts in the field, provides an overview and rationale for inclusive education, methods for early childhood education and early childhood special education, foundations in content area material (e.g. math, language arts), and instructional strategies (content specific accommodations and modifications). Because students need to understand the theoretical framework for the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to serve the needs of all young children (those who are typically developing as well as those with delays or disabilities and those from diverse backgrounds), this text will provide a resource for teaching and learning this information.

Today's students use their digital expertise and the power of their voice to respond to issues of inequity in society. It is essential that teacher educators develop their own racial literacies and those of their preservice and classroom teachers to support student digital activism. From talking about race and racism to resisting the harmful narratives that circulate online but impact face-to-face interactions in the classroom, teacher educators must navigate sociotechnical spaces with a critical lens and develop strategies to help their preservice teachers do the same. This book is designed to increase educators' capacity and agency to respond to inequities that plague our educational system. The authors provide a framework to help readers rethink how curriculum and pedagogy impact classroom instruction. In Advancing Racial Literacies in Teacher Education, Price-Dennis and Sealey-Ruiz provide theoretical and practical entry points into a conversation about race in the digital age that aim to increase equity in schools and better prepare teachers entering the U.S. school system. Book Features: Provides examples of how racial literacy can be fostered in teacher education programs. Offers reflection questions designed to assess the status of racial literacy in both teacher education programs and K-12 classrooms. Helps educators develop curricula that leverage multimodal ways of cultivating racial literacy. Offers a conceptual model of racial literacy for the digital age that advances civic engagement for equity in education. Focuses on pedagogical practices that support racial literacy development in teacher education. Includes a Foreword by Jabari Mahiri and an Afterword by Rebecca Rogers, leading scholars in the field of racial literacy.
