ABSTRACT

Under the agreement on the importance about inclusion of students with disabilities into general education classroom, an introduction to special education course has been required for pre-service teacher training. However, research on how things stand in terms of its scope and sequence is wanting to set up guidelines to maximize the effects of the course. In this study, we selected university syllabi from the US to examine the course objectives, contents and course requirements by CEC/INTASC’s 10 standards. The results of this study indicated that introduction to special education course as a ground course offering to general education pre-service teachers mainly dealt with special education foundation, CEC/INTASC standard 1. Course requirements such as attendance related activities, media/technology related activities, individual/group project, and volunteer/service learning project were suggested with specific guidelines to accomplish objectives. With discussion on the results, this study suggested management plan for introduction to special education course to train and produce pre-service teachers to support high quality inclusive education.
