ABCs of Special Education: Interactive Module on Special Education Acronyms
AbstractIn classrooms across the state and country, students with disabilities are being introduced into regular education classes at a greater rate than ever before. Many teachers often lack the fundamental understanding of how to interact and work with this diverse population of students. The purpose of the instructional design project was to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of an online learning module designed to aid school teachers in the understanding of high-use special education terminology and acronyms. Ten public high school teachers participated in the module testing. The findings highlighted an eagerness to participate in a non-familiar instructional format while demonstrating a greater understanding of the instructional material when comparing the pre- and post-module test.
