MUED 401 - Music and Special Children

3 credits
This course consists of readings, discussions, guest speakers, classroom observations, and simulated teaching to help students define and examine various types of disabilities; develop a background on special education practices and laws in America; develop an appreciation of the needs of handicapped persons in general society, in education, and in music education; and guide music education students in developing goals and objectives, adapting lessons and preparing meaningful lesson plans for special students in the music classroom. Participation in class discussion based on assigned reading, a written/verbal presentation on a specific disability, field observations, and two written examinations provide the basis for evaluating student achievement.
