EDUC614 - Living and Learning with Exceptional Students


Course participants will develop instructional and leadership skills required for teaching students with special learning needs, as well as students at-risk for academic and social failure. The concepts of educator collaboration, least restrictive environment, accommodations and modifications, confidentiality, behavior management, identification, and giftedness will be reviewed using authentic case studies. Participants will reflect upon how these concepts drive instructional practices in today’s challenging classroom environment. Case studies will be used to facilitate online discussions regarding beliefs, best practices, challenges, current research, and applications to individuals’ own teaching practice. The cases in this course depict problems and opportunities related to classroom management, individual behavior management strategies and systems, functional behavioral assessments, developmentally appropriate behavior management goals, and zero tolerance policies. (Prerequisite: EDUC503)
