M.Ed. with a concentration in Middle School (grades 4-8) and Secondary (grades 6-12) Mild/Moderate Special Education (524E)
The M.Ed. (524E) program with a concentration in Middle School (Grades 4-8) or Secondary (Grades 6-12) Mild/Moderate disabilities is guided by the national Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) professional and ethical principles and practice standards in ways that respect the diverse characteristics and needs of individuals with exceptionalities and their families. Initial knowledge and skills in the area of Middle School (Grades 4-8) or Secondary (Grades 6-12) Mild/Moderate disabilities prepares already certified teachers in national CEC and state standards of learner development and individual learning differences, learning environments, curricular content knowledge, assessment, instructional planning and evidence-based strategies, professional learning and ethical practices, and collaboration. Furthermore, the program aligns with the Gallaspy College of Education and Human Development Conceptual Framework, Models for Learning where students engage in creative and critical thinking, responsibility taking, decision making, and problem solving.
