Special Education, Part 3 Specialist - Secondary Focus

The Additional Qualification Course: Special Education Specialist extends and reinforces the knowledge and skills from Part I and Part 2 with a specific focus on the development of leadership skills. It employs a critical, pedagogical lens to explore in a holistic and integrated manner theoretical foundations, development of learners, program planning and implementation, instructional practices, assessment and evaluation, the learning environment and ethical considerations related to teaching and learning across the divisions. This course supports the enhancement of professional knowledge, ethical practice, leadership and ongoing learning.

Foundational to this course is exploring the pedagogical, curricular, and environmental challenges and opportunities in teaching, learning, and leading in the secondary school. We will move beyond our own classroom practice and consider how we might lead, support, and challenge colleagues, students, and community to re-conceptualize disability in order to better implement differentiated instruction, accommodations, modifications, and universal design for learning in the subject-specific classroom.

This course will consider special education and its role in schooling and society. We will learn about various disabilities and exceptionalities, and from a student and self-advocate perspective explore disability as an important component of an individual’s identity and how disability can be amplified and integrated in the secondary school setting.
