SPED-334 : Instructional Support for Content Areas (PreK-8)

Academic Level:
Special Education
Special Education

This course focuses on expanding the understanding of development and cognition in and academic and functional performance of students with disabilities, how these are similar to and different from all developing students, and how this understanding informs the teaching of students with disabilities in the primary and middle school environments. Another area of exploration is the way in which these differences need to be addressed within a standards-aligned system that demands high expectations of students with disabilities so that they have true access to the general education curriculum. This course will enhance the development of a range of instructional supports and use of validated practices in prospective teachers for inclusive settings, especially in content area subjects, but also the supporting skills of reading, written language, and math, that are necessary for success in today's classrooms. 3 credits PREREQUISITE: SPED 230.
