Overview

REVEL is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, REVEL replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, REVEL is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience—for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

 

An informative, accessible, and interesting introduction to the ongoing story of special education.

Special education is an ongoing story of people–of exceptional children, of the families of children with special needs, and of the teachers who work with them. Exceptional Children: An Introduction to Special Education focuses on 15 experienced teachers to give readers first-person insight into this diverse field. It also details, step-by-step, how special educators use highly effective, research-based practices to promote student achievement in their classrooms. The Eleventh Edition includes new information that reflects the current professional practices, trends, and research that define the exciting and ever-evolving field of special education.
