In this course, we will investigate instructional practices that can be used in general education classrooms to improve the learning and academic performance of students with mild learning problems and disabilities. We will focus on instruction in the content-area subjects of science, social studies, and mathematics. Our goal is not to examine how to teach these subjects, but, rather, how to design and differentiate instruction that is sensitive to individual learning needs and preferences. We also will address Universal Design for Learning, collaborative planning for instruction, content enhancement, secondary and transition services, and creating a classroom climate in which all students have the opportunity to participate and succeed.
