EDP 675 Issues in Bilingualism in Special Education and Inclusive Classrooms
3 hours; 3 credits
The purpose of this course is to enhance students’ awareness and knowledge of the issues relating to cultural pluralism and multilingualism in the field of special education. This course will analyse the needs of individuals with disabilities for whom English is not a native language. Topics will include the identification and assessment of limited English proficient (LEP) children, the research concerning first and second language acquisition, strategies for the instruction of children from different cultures and with different language experience, and administrative difficulties in the implementation of special education programs for children who are not native speakers of English. Twenty hours of fieldwork in a classroom enhance the students’ ability to deal with bilingualism in special education and inclusive settings.
