Childhood Inclusive Education
Overview and Description of the Program
The Childhood Inclusive Education program prepares teacher candidates to earn two teaching certificates (Childhood Education, grades 1-6 and Students with Disabilities, grades 1-6) after successfully completing additional coursework on assessing and teaching students with disabilities in general education settings. As part of our teacher preparation program, teacher candidates complete a series of four field-based experiences in local schools. Each field experience is taught in conjunction with a required educational course to clearly connect educational theory and practice. Each of the field experiences is highly structured, well supervised, and intended to provide multiple opportunities for teacher candidates to plan, instruct, reflect, and respond with students in general education classroom settings. One field experience and one student teaching placement are specifically designed to enable candidates to assess and teach students with special needs.
