L&I 637 - Teaching Diverse Groups (2)

In this course, pre-service teachers will be introduced to teaching students with mild-to-moderate disabilities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, including English learners. They will learn basic skills needed to create positive, healthy learning environments, collaborate with professionals, and understand various disabilities. Candidates will participate in analytic and reflective discussion, examine decision-making procedures, and discuss critical incidents from case-studies observations of professional teachers. During this course, candidates will begin developing professional portfolios that demonstrate their acquisition of the knowledge and skills defined in the Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs).
