The most widely-used text on the topic of collaboration, Interactions is a guide for preprofessionals and professionals to help them understand and participate effectively in their interactions with other school professionals and parents, in an increasingly diverse world that is also now routinely electronically and globally connected. 


Interactions presents theory and conceptual principles heavily seasoned with examples, cases, and applied activities. Written specifically to enable readers to quickly use their skills in professional settings, the book will be a useful tool for preservice educators and practitioners—whether they are engaged in formal instructional settings, a study group, or independent study.
