Candidates in the graduate Teacher Education program hosted a panel of students from The Gow School on Monday, April 24. The course, Inclusive Strategies, prepares candidates for the challenges of working with diverse students. The class is informed about the laws governing special education, research-based materials and strategies, as well as how to utilize the latest technology. Students gain a positive attitude towards working with students who have special needs and a newfound empathy for the students and their families.
The Gow School is an independent, residential, internationally-acclaimed school specifically for students with dyslexia. These young men and women shared their inspirational personal stories and offered advice for the upcoming educators.
