EDA 5152 - Found Tch Learn Inclus Adol Ed
Foundations of Teaching and Learning explores the historical, philosophical and sociological foundations of education and the rights and responsibilities of teachers, professional staff, parents, students and community with regard to education. This course explores the nature of students within a full range of disabilities and special health care needs as well as the effects of those disabilities and needs on learning and behavior. Teachers today must confront complex questions that are central to schooling in a democratic society, including diverse and inclusive classroom environments, the nature and needs of students with disabilities, and how to collaborate and individualize instruction to promote academic achievement and maximize learning for all. By helping students understand education within its historical, multicultural, and special education context, instructors enable them to formulate and articulate reasoned positions regarding contemporary issues. Also included are instruction in the prevention of child abduction, fire and arson, and abuse of alcohol, tobacco and drugs. The course develops understanding regarding the rights and responsibilities of the community and school personnel to foster relationships that enhance student learning and support student growth. It is designed to help students think critically and practice reflectively in diverse and inclusive classrooms.
