Course DescriptionDespite the prevalence of students with disabilities in the general education classroom, few teachers receive training on how to meet these students’ needs or how to navigate the legally mandated processes enumerated in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). What is a general education teacher’s role? What are their responsibilities? What must they do to ensure students with disabilities and other special needs receive the quality education they’re entitled to? This course provides a comprehensive look at special education law and processes and provides a guide to instructional best practices for the inclusive classroom. Topics include the prereferral, referral and evaluation processes, IEP’s, accommodations, transitions from pre-K to post high school, classroom management and student behavior, instructional strategies and delivery options, and assessment and grading. This is an indispensable course for general education teachers.
