Like the foregrounding of learning theories emphasis on teaching at masters level. Broad coverage of topics to include different viewpoints and extensive reference list. Also like the way in which inclusion is introduced demonstrating historical development emphasising current position of teachers' responsibility to all children. Good balance between important theoretical/ philosophical points and practical advice for students. --Lecturer, University of Aberdeen
