This course addresses racial disproportionality in Special Education. Thus, the purpose of this field experience and seminar is to provide several opportunities for advanced licensure candidates to explore the relationship between race and exceptionality in their practice. Students will critically examine their own social positions and reflect upon ways in which their cultural assumptions, beliefs, and value systems enhance or hinder their interactions with students and families from racial backgrounds different from their own. Students will share the field observations and reflections in the seminar, and the instructor will provide content and facilitate discussions and self-reflections on these observations based on multicultural educational theory and practice. A field experience of 10 hours in a classroom setting or other educational program that services P – 12 students, such as some community-based programs, after school or summer-school programs, is required.
