Credits: 3.0

This course is designed to prepare special education teacher candidates to teach children with high incidence dis/abilities such as learning dis/abilities, intellectual dis/abilities, and behavioral dis/abilities. The curriculum focuses on the special educators' role in the continuum of classroom settings and evidence-based teaching methods. Reading, spelling, and written language are often primary areas of concern for these students. The course will provide systematic approaches to determining students' academic levels and explicit instructional strategies for each of these areas. Mathematics and content area instruction will also be addressed. Throughout the course, the importance of appropriate materials selection and modes of instruction to increase student engagement will be illustrated. The course assignments intend to assist special education teacher candidates in the skills of designing appropriate teaching lessons and strategies and monitoring the effect of these strategies on student learning.
