Inclusive Interdisciplinary Curriculum Development: Pre K-12 Classrooms

This course examines validated inclusion practices-in assessment, curriculum, instruction, and program evaluation-that promote the education of culturally, racially, and linguistically diverse students with mild to moderate special needs (Pre K-12). Particular emphasis is placed on the collaborative structures and processes for building the capacity for inclusion in urban school settings. Major topics include organizational structures that support inclusion in the delivery of both building-based and classroom services; models of alternative assessment; interdisciplinary and thematic project-based learning; and inclusive instructional strategies for reading, language arts, math, and content-area subjects. Participants collaborate with general education teachers and related service providers in field-based assignments and a culminating project.
