Teaching All Learners: A Program in Special and Elementary Teacher Education

The goal of the Teaching All Learners Program is to prepare undergraduate students with knowledge of effective strategies and curriculum associated with teaching in classrooms with students having a wide range of developmental levels and abilities. Graduates of this program will be prepared to work as consultant teachers, co-teachers in inclusive settings, teachers in self-contained classrooms for students with mild disabilities, and general elementary education teachers. Successful completion of this program will result in a recommendation for both elementary: grades K - 6, and special education: mild intervention, K - 6 licenses.

In Teaching All Learners, we emphasize the following:

  • Developing a strong understanding of general education curriculum and techniques
  • Developing mastery in working with students with exceptional behavioral and educational needs
  • The integration of theories, philosophies, and techniques more typically associated separately with either general or special education traditions
  • Research and inquiry
  • Collaborative teaching and learning
  • Intensive field-experience
The Teaching All Learners Program prepares individuals to teach general elementary:
K - 6, and special education: mild intervention, K - 6.

The Teaching All Learners Program is divided into two main components as follows:
General Education 48-49 cr.
Professional Education 79 cr.
Total 128-129 cr.
General Education: Distribution (48-49 credit hours)
Students who think they have the competence required in a course may contact the chairperson of the department offering the course. If the department chairperson agrees, the student will be permitted to take a credit examination.

Courses listed by number are either specifically required or are part of a group from which selections must be made to fill a specific requirement. See the appropriate school bulletins for course descriptions. The speech requirement may not be met by correspondence.

Some COAS TOPICS courses may be used toward completing this general education requirement. See an advisor for course eligibility.
