ED 583S Fieldwork in Special Education
This course is designed to meet the needs of students who are currently certified (PA Instructional I or II) and who are seeking an additional certification in special education. Over the semester, students will complete their field experiences in a special education setting in a public school, charter school or APS with students who have IEPs. The course is designed as a hybrid course composed of classroom meetings and on line participation in discussions. Student completion of experiences in the field and reflecting on those experiences (including teaching a minimum of 4 lessons to be critiqued by the host teacher and a minimum of 2 additional lessons observed and critiqued by the instructor) is the primary component of the course.
