ITW 101:  WILL YOU JOIN THE MARCH?

Are you curious about the disability rights movement?  Do you wonder if there is a difference between disabilities and learning differences? Do you want to take a journey into understanding the lives of people with disabilities and their families?  Do you ever think that you also could be the person with a disability?  In this course we will investigate the lives of individuals with disabilities/learning differences from historical, cultural, legal, and educational perspectives.  We will examine disability rights, disabilities as a social construct, and self-determination.  Writing assignments include written reflections using critical thinking, analysis of professional literature, and a research project where students will investigate a topic of personal interest related to the course.  We will use a variety of research sources including a text, life story books/memoirs, professional journals, and electronic resources.
