Building on the theoretical and philosophical work found in Removing the Margins, Inclusive Schooling: A Teacher's Companion to Removing the Margins lays out a practical approach to inclusive schooling for educators. As an accompanying volume, this companion guide helps move inclusive schooling from theory to social action.
Removing the Margins identified and challenged many of the cultural and systematic paradigms that perpetuate racism and other forms of oppression in mainstream schooling. Inclusive Schooling shows that by collapsing the artificial boundaries between schools, off-school sites, local communities and families, and by welcoming the spiritualities, languages, and indigenous knowledges that students bring with them, schools can be transformed from sources of oppression into sites for social transformation.

Reflowable eTextbooks respond to the size of the device they are viewed on, much like a typical website. This causes them to look different from a traditional book. They may also contain embedded audio, video, or interactive components in addition to the RedShelf Reader’s standard study tools.
What is a Fixed Layout eBook?
A fixed layout eTextbook maintains the look and the feel of a printed textbook. The text is fixed, and the screen size determines the size of the text. These eTextbooks work best on large-screen devices and do not contain any embedded media or interactive content.
