The modern-day classroom has a wide diversity of students with a variety of backgrounds. In order for us to provide the best quality of education to our students, we should try to understand the experiences and challenges individuals can face. By understanding the students in our class, we can create inclusive spaces and help everyone feel like they belong.
In the first module in this Foundations of Special Education learner pathway, we will cover what are exceptionalities, types of exceptionalities, and how that might impact classrooms. Throughout the rest of this learner pathway, we will learn about why equity is important in education, and skills in differentiating instruction. Our goal is to provide you with some foundational knowledge, advocacy skills, and tools for differentiation.
