CIED 2070 Educational Practices in Inclusive Classrooms


This writing intensive course provides a knowledge base in teacher dispositions, national and state standards that provide the framework and sequence for academic achievement, lesson plan development, differentiated teaching strategies and assessments, family/school connections, learning environment, and classroom management.   Teacher candidates explore how teachers can build upon the personal, cultural, and community assets that P-12 students bring to school to design varied learning experiences that contribute to the success of every student in school, regardless of their learning needs.  Candidates will examine the intersection of influences upon learning of cultural and linguistic status and learner characteristics of different disabilities in physical, emotional, cognitive, and socio-behavioral domains.  Teacher candidates examine the procedures for identifying, assessing, and providing services for P-12 students with disabilities.  The course meets at WPU and has a 20-hour school observation component where students observe classroom practices in special education or inclusive classrooms.   All sections are writing intensive.
