EDUC 557/5234 - Reaching Diverse and Underserved Learners (3 cr.)



Description
Traditional methods of teaching have been unable to meet the needs of all learners. Students with physical and learning disabilities, students for whom the language of instruction is not their first language, and students who come from impoverished backgrounds all tend to struggle to learn and demonstrate academic proficiency in traditional models of education. This course explores the methods of differentiation and the theoretical foundations of special education, second language instruction, and education of impoverished students. It provides an introduction to each of these areas by providing explicit classroom strategies while providing the underlying theoretical conditions for these strategies.
