This course will focus on strategies to address the needs of integrated classrooms. The concepts of design and adaptation of instructional material for individual and small group use, teacher characteristics which enhance the learning situation; assessment (both formal and informal), and student behaviors that influence integrated classrooms will be addressed. Students will explore how curricula can be used to challenge all students and allow them the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Using Gardner’s multiple intelligence concepts and applying strategies from Gordon’s┬áPeople Types and Tiger Stripes, students will develop an understanding of the various theories proposed to deal with diverse populations. They will participate in personal assessments of their individual learning/intelligence types and develop a “Strategic Learning Plan” for themselves. In addition, students will develop and practice a variety of techniques that could be used in inclusionary classroom settings.
