EDU 322 Differentiated Instruction
Differentiated Instruction will provide pre-service teachers with the knowledge, skills, and conceptual understanding needed to address a wide range of learners in the regular classroom setting. Building on previous foundational courses and INTASC standards 2, 3, 4,and 7, students will gain further background in essential aspects of special education including placement, IEPs, current issues and case study experiences. In addition, students will apply critical thinking to problem solving classroom challenges and designing learning opportunities with regard to Section 504, culturally and linguistically diverse learner needs, and gifted learners. Focus will be on the practical applications of theory, law, and research towards differentiating instruction so that all children are able to learn and succeed.
