EDUC 207 - Inclusive and Special Education

Introduce students to foundational concepts, theories, and strategies of inclusive education and disability studies. Students will develop a critical understanding of ability/disability in educational contexts and will learn the tools of classroom analysis and instruction necessary to teach all learners in inclusive (general education) settings. This course approaches disability as a form of diversity, asking students to question and analyze constructs of normalcy and exceptionality that underpin traditional special education discourses and practices. Historical, legal, and cultural perceptions and experiences of disability are examined, and attention is given to how and why identification, placement, and evaluation of disability occur within education. Teacher candidates are required to complete school-based fieldwork hours in conjunction with this course. This course can satisfy 10-15 hours of the 100 required school-based fieldwork hours for students seeking teacher certification.
