Clearinghouse for Special Education Teaching Cases

Clearinghouse for Special Education Teaching Cases

This national clearinghouse was designed and developed by the Special Education Department at the University of South Florida, as part of a federal OSEP Special Projects grant. The clearinghouse contains 54 problem-based teaching cases on a variety of topics that are matched to CEC's standards of practice. The cases are true stories told by practicing teachers representing different regions of the US and numerous educational settings. Instructors may search for cases by title, topic, or CEC Accomplished Practices.

This cite provides special education teaching cases aligned with CEC competency standards that can be used in classes or professional development. The website offers a number of ways to search for cases by topic, competency or alphabetical. I plan to use these materials this spring.
