“Less Afraid to Have Them in My Classroom”: Understanding Pre-Service General Educators’ Perceptions about Inclusion
The purpose of this study was two-fold: (1) to understand the perceptions of pre-service general educators about the inclusion of students with disabilities (SWDs) prior to and at the end of a required course on integrating exceptional students; and (2) to determine if there was a difference by program. The authors conclude that infusion of special education content across the curriculum is one recommendation for enhancing and understanding of SWDs, but the quantity and quality of content in this area will vary based on the background knowledge of each instructor. The authors suggest that teacher educators can only strengthen programs by building relationships across disciplines. Instructional strategies and accommodations that seamlessly grant students with disabilities maximum access to the general education curriculum should naturally be infused in methods courses.

Learning While Teaching: A Case Study of Beginning Special Educators Completing a Master of Arts in Teaching
The purpose of this study was to understand how the extent to which the program was implemented, the participants’ background and career trajectories, and the teaching context interacted to yield their success. To understand the interactions of these elements, the researcher examined the academic and personal backgrounds of three teachers completing a MAT program in Varying Exceptionalities. The researcher also examined the teachers’ sense of self-efficacy, observed their practice, and gained the perspectives of their mentor teachers.
