Writing Intensive Teaching

Instructor provided feedback
Oral presentation by student, followed by feedback
Peer review
 
Peers review the writing with a rubric/checklist for specific feedback.
The strategies assignment requires students apply course content to add to specific strategies for students with disabilities. Students have to add a self-management component as well as an additional support-needs section. This requires students use creativity and can include multiple types of supports. For the behavior management assignment, students need to also add a support section as well as a generalization and maintenance section. This requires that students think beyond just collecting data and applying a research-based strategy. They also must apply additional things learned to promote the success of the intervention for each student.
The second 4 weeks include the first strategy assignment and the behavior management plan. The next four weeks include the second strategy assignment and the draft of the paper. The last four weeks include the final paper and preparation for the class presentation.

Patricia Luckenotte (luckenottep) (Wed, 09 Nov 2016 16:25:24 GMT): I have added SPC_ED 4380W, 01 to the spring 2017 schedule of classes and cancelled the regular section of SPC_ED 4380, 01 for Spring. The students who were enrolled in the regular section of SPC_ED 4380 have been moved to the new section of SPC_ED 4380W.
