This course focuses on practical instructional strategies for designing developmentally appropriate and challenging learning experiences based on the unique needs of individual learners. Students use differentiated instruction and universal design for learning as frameworks for designing lessons that meet the needs of diverse learners. Methods for adapting instruction and supporting students through modifications, accommodations, and assistive technology are explored. Students will collect a repertoire of evidence-based strategies for identifying and addressing the reading, writing, math, and study skills of students with disabilities. Through field experience, students have the opportunity to observe in the classroom and gain practical experience planning, delivering, adapting, and reflecting upon a series of individualized lessons. 10 hours of field work are required. (Prerequisites: EDU 101C/TECP 50C and ENGL 101C) A $25 fee will be assessed to all students taking TECP 62C to cover the cost of clinical practice.
