For decades, teachers and families alike have had a hard time finding the right education for students with special needs. Many students are getting the help they need by being placed in special education classrooms, but there’s been an ongoing debate about whether these programs are the best solution for these students.
Examining both sides of the special education debate can help you determine the best approach for your own classroom. In this course, you’ll learn about different types of exceptional learners and how they benefit from or are harmed by placement in special education environments. You’ll also explore general education practices that can help all students succeed and support special needs students in inclusive settings.
Education is a subject that has for a long time been considered essential to the development of a human being. However, this raises an important question: who is an exceptional learner?
