ESE 341 - Mild/Moderate Rotation & Seminar 2: Assessment & Instruction

[3 credit(s)]
This course will introduce key elements of instructional planning and the manner in which assessment practices may be employed to support and enhance learning. The focus of this course is on the administration and interpretation of formal and informal assessment tools for students with mild/moderate disabilities and the utilization of Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behavior Support to ensure the academic and social success of public school students. The course emphasizes the direct link between assessment and the design of appropriate instruction and the dissemination of best practice approaches in the management of student behavior within applied educational settings including the utilization of Positive Behavior Support. It is intended that the participant in this course will not only develop an understanding of assessment and instructional practices employed in learning environments for students with mild/moderate disabilities, but also an appreciation for the diverse backgrounds and unique educational needs of this population. Accordingly, positive approaches that are proactive and individualized to meet specific needs will be presented along with information on creating and maintaining educational environments that are conducive to student success. The course assignments will require that the participants, individually and cooperatively, make decisions in selecting and administering assessments, collecting behavioral data as well as developing appropriate educational and behavioral plans based on assessment outcomes. Clinical experience is required. Students will spend 75 hours in field (school and non-school settings), 37.5 hours in classroom (primarily in field location) focusing on Assessment, Value Added concepts, Planning for Learning, Implementation of Teaching and Learning, Pedagogical Content, Classroom Management (Classroom Environment, Culturally Responsive Teaching). Essential content from rotation 1 (Context for Learning, Diversity) will be revisited and interns understanding and application of previously introduced content will be enhanced and deepened. All students enrolled in this class must have a valid and unexpired Clearance Report from the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on file with the college advising office.
