EDUC 532 - Methods and Materials in Teaching Students with Disabilities, Grades 7–12


Credit(s): 3
Prerequisite(s): EDUC 502  
This course examines curriculum and instruction from the perspective of secondary education teachers of students with disabilities whose individual learning needs require teachers to go beyond typical models of general classroom instruction to give students with disabilities access to the general education curriculum and assessments. Candidates identify, examine, and practice a variety of effective teaching strategies for the education of students with disabilities. Candidates learn to differentiate and individualize instruction and engage in collegial collaboration. They examine learning processes, lesson and unit planning, motivation, and communication in order to stimulate and sustain student interest, involvement, and achievement. Fifteen hours of fieldwork is required.
