A text calling to teachers in diverse, inclusive schools to move beyond facilitating social participation in classroom activities and to consider ways to intellectually engage ALL learners. The book draws on emerging work linking critical theory with disability issues; work being done in curriculum studies around issues of social justice teaching, authentic instruction, service learning, and critical pedagogy; and the movement in the field of special education away from a deficit-driven model of education to an orientation that values students' strengths and gifts.
