Reaching All Students in General and Special Education
Inclusive learning provides all students with access to flexible learning choices and effective paths for achieving educational goals in spaces where they experience a sense of belonging. As special and general education teachers move toward creating more inclusive classrooms, the frameworks of Disability Studies in Education and Universal Design for Learning employ strategies to meet the expectations of IDEA and expand understanding of student ability. Collaboration and critical insight remain crucial while considering the role of the Common Core Standards in this context. This specialization is appropriate for K-12 special education and general education teachers.
Engage all learners in your classroom as you challenge the status quo, remove curriculum barriers, present educational goals in interesting ways and serve all students equitably.
