SED 540 Students with Exceptionalities in General Education

The primary goal of this course is to construct an understanding and knowledge of the range of exceptionalities, including students with disabilities and those identified as gifted and talented. The course is based on the premise that students with exceptionalities should be educated and socially interact to the greatest extent possible with their peers in the general education curriculum and program. The general educator's role in teaching learners who are exceptional will be emphasized. Topics include characteristics of areas of exceptionality; classroom management; assistive technology; state and federal legislation regarding exceptional students; Response to Intervention (RTI); Universal Design for Learning (UDL); individual education programs (IEP); building relationships with parents; students who are culturally and linguistically diverse; and inclusion and collaboration philosophy and practices.

SED 625 Multi-Tier Mathematics Instruction and Assessment

This course includes lectures, discussions, guided practice and applied learning experiences in the scope and sequence of progressively more intensive mathematics instruction and assessment for students with mathematics difficulties in kindergarten through grade 12, including students with diverse abilities and backgrounds. Starting with the five foundations of math instruction (e.g., conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, strategic competence, adaptive reasoning, productive disposition), the course describes the features of universal (e.g., Tier 1) core math instruction then provides guided practice and applied learning experiences to prepare teachers to use progressively more intensive math instruction based on student learning needs. Participants will learn how to select and use scientifically validated mathematics instruction and assessment practices for students needing supplemental (e.g., Tier 2) and intensive (e.g., Tier 3), and special education mathematics instruction and assessment. Prerequisite: SED 653 or SED 654 or program permission. Cr 3.
