Addressing the Need for Special Education Teachers: The Impact of Online Instruction on Preservice Teachers' Attitudes toward Inclusion
Reeves, Clarence Eugene, Jr.; Robertson, Janna Siegel; Taylor, Shanon S.
Teacher Education and Practice, v24 n2 p187-200 Spr 2011
This study involved undergraduate preservice education teachers enrolled in online-instructed and lecture-instructed introductory courses in special education. Pre- and postsurveys were administered to obtain information on the students' attitudes toward making accommodations in regular classrooms for students with special needs--physical, academic, behavioral, and social. Quantitative and qualitative data were both analyzed to determine similarities and differences between the two groups' attitudes toward inclusion. Significant differences were not found between the groups' attitudes toward accommodating students with special needs in a general classroom setting. (Contains 5 tables.)
