Many preservice secondary teachers feel well prepared by their teacher preparation programs to teach their content area. However, these same preservice teachers overwhelmingly indicated that more instruction in serving students with special needs-modifications, management techniques, paperwork and educational terms-was warranted. They understand that they are expected to not only "deal" with students with special needs in the regular education classroom when they begin teaching but also teach them. In order to be prepared to educate students with special needs in the regular education classroom, new teachers need to know the terms and have information about the responsibilities associated with these students. The purpose of this article is to provide a list and description of the top ten things new secondary teachers need to know about special education.
