From the general music class, ensemble rehearsal, and the self-contained classroom we will explore ways to work with diverse learners. Sometimes these students thrive with classroom management techniques. At other times, we use Universal Design for Learning to provide ideas for teacher presentation, student responses, and motivation to engage our classes in musical development. A large number of disorders will be covered to include autism spectrum disorder, learning disabilities, emotional behavioral disorders, and gifted. As we watch, read, discuss, and simulate, participants will make connections to their schools.
