Overview

Course Title

Clinical Residency I

Description

ECPSE 577: Clinical Residency I, is the first of three intensive clinical residencies. In this first clinical residency, residents will have multiple, scaffolded opportunities to apply what they are learning in their college course work in secondary (i.e., grades 7-12) classrooms including students with or at-risk for disabilities as they endeavor to create safe and culturally sustaining learning environments that inspire critical engagement. Residents will reflect on and revise their teaching practice in authentic, diverse, urban teaching situations. Residents will be provided with significant support from both faculty and mentor teachers so that by the end of the semester, residents are well on their way to developing and demonstrating knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions in fundamental aspects of pedagogy that are consistent with research-validated, discipline specific, best-practices for promoting student learning and well-being.ECPSE 577 is the first of three semesters of clinical residency for Graduate Programs in Special Education (GPSE) residents in the secondary special education level Transitional B MAT clinical residency programs (see also ECPSE 578—Clinical Residency II and ECPSE 579—Clinical Residency III), which will provide a vehicle for a highly structured clinical experience and capitalize on the opportunity for applying and reflecting on strategies, theories, and practices learned in college coursework through the resident’s daily work with the mentor in the hostschool.
