Diversity Series: Special Education II
0.25 Credit

The purpose of this second-level course is to critically assess how we view ability and disability in educational contexts. Specifically, the course challenges Teacher Education Candidates to consider how children are "differently-abled." A strengths-based perspective from which to teach is foundational to this course. The course provides an overview of historical and social movements which have led to current inclusive practice. The course provides an opportunity to develop teaching practices which support all students. The course content will vary in its focus on curriculum expectations, learning and teaching at the different grade levels, depending on divisional enrolment of TECs.
