    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Murray is an amazing woman. She understands the battles that adult students go through with work, family, and school. She is also a student, so she knows first hand. She is also willing to work with you on making up late assignments or not being able to complete your practicum hours before the deadline on week 6. This is also an amazing eye opener about the range of special education students and exceptional students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that special education students need to be challenged by their work, and a good teacher will make them look like they aren't behind their age group. I also learned about many disabilities that I was never aware of before.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, make sure that you are always honest with the professor about your schedule or other issues in your life that might affect your work in school. Also make sure that you can dedicate two or three hours in study every day minimum. The reading is extremely important, the journal assignments are supposed to be based on it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a class dedicated to getting students involved and aware of students with disabilities (physical, emotional, mental, etc.) Where most classes have a small section dedicated to teaching students with disabilities, this instructor has you creating a special development of instruction for one student alone, technological advances that would help them get around, and basically educate you on the overall experience any student with a disability might have, putting you in their shoes, and giving you the knowledge you would need to help them if the situation ever arose or you needed to change something about your own classroom.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what it's like to have a student with a disability in my class or be disabled. I learned there is more I could do than just simply differentiating my instruction and accommodating their needs. I spoke to many guest speakers and did tons of research on instances and past cases of disabilities that either hindered people from an education or blessed them with the opportunity to be a great student despite it all.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this course, I would recommend that you prepare to have your mind changed, and prepare to be challenged in a professional sense as well as an emotional sense. You will be working one on one with peers every class, interacting in depth to where you all become closer by the time the semester is over- doing group project after group studying and group trips. And you will be working one on one with people who have suffered from disabilities all their lives or had accidents later on.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I was really excited to take a special education class, because I currently work as a paraprofessional in a school with middle school students. I was able to observe another class and see for myself what an ED classroom is like. I learned a lot in this class and looking forward to more Special Education and Education classes for this program of study!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about special education and how every student is different no matter what their disability is. I also learned that everyone is entitled to an education and all students have the ability to learn and come to school.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn as much as you can in this course, it does have a lot of important things that people on the outside, may sterotype about the exceptional learner. It is important to treat everyone the same or treath them the way you want to be treated.
