EDSN 528 Educating Students with ADD/ADHD (PreK-12)
Instructor, Christine Boone
Instructor, Stephen York
Throughout this inquiry-based study, educators will use current research to understand the characteristics and needs of learners with ADD/ADHD. Course participants will apply their learning to help students with ADD/ADHD to become successful, self-reliant, life-long learners and citizens within the classroom, home, and community. Topics examined will include differentiated instruction, multiple intelligences, and brain-research. Educators will participate in a professional learning cohort as they pursue this inquiry. The ultimate goal of this course is to help pre-kindergarten through grade 12 students, with ADD/ADHD, to acquire 21st century skills needed for living and working successfully in a global society.
The study will also be informed by The Common Core Standards.
