This course is designed for students interested in general education and/or special education. The course objectives are to introduce students to terminology, legislation, types of special needs and teaching strategies relevant to addressing the needs of all learners in the general education classroom. By exploring inclusion, we will be addressing often unexamined notions of what it means to be "normal" and we will consider the rights of individuals with special needs to the least restrictive environment and access to the best possible education. This course is organized to serve as a model for creating an inclusive learning environment in the general education classroom. Although it is useful for any working with individuals with special needs, it is particularly geared towards teacher education candidates and those interested in exploring issues relevant to early and elementary education.
