EDUC 207 - Inclusive and Anti-Ableist Education

An introduction to foundational concepts, theories, and strategies of inclusive education and disability studies. Students develop a critical understanding of ability/disability in educational contexts and will learn the tools of classroom analysis and instruction necessary to teach all learners in inclusive (general education) settings. Approaches disability as a form of diversity, asking students to question and analyze constructs of normalcy and exceptionality that underpin traditional special education discourses and practices. Historical, legal, and cultural perceptions and experiences of disability are examined, and attention is given to how and why identification, placement, and evaluation of disability occur within education. Teacher candidates are required to complete school-based fieldwork hours in conjunction with this course.
