Inclusive Classroom Strategies

In this course, students will be introduced to exceptional learners, and investigate instructional practices that can be used in general education classrooms to improve outcomes for students with and without disabilities. The course will focus on educating students in the least restrictive environment (LRE), and will learn to utilize differentiated instruction to meet the needs of all students. Models of co-teaching will be examined, as well as cooperative learning, heterogeneous grouping, multicultural education, social skills training, and technology applications.
