EDSP 310 Q - Theory to Practice: Field Experience (3 credits)


(Prereq: EDSP 200 ) This course is a supervised field experience requiring 2 half days per week with students with mild to moderate disabilities. During this experience, teacher candidates observe the roles of special educators in their placement, identify research/evidence based practices implemented in their placement, review student records, and describe models of service delivery in their placement. Additionally, teacher candidates support classroom professionals by regularly (a) implementing classroom behavior plans under guidance of classroom staff and (b) providing individualized assistance to students with mild to moderate disabilities. Related seminar addresses the roles of special educators, organizational and legal contexts for special education programs, models of service delivery, professional and ethical practice, collaboration skills, and research/evidence based practices. The link between theory and practice is emphasized.  F.
