Call for Papers for SSEPC Monograph

Theme: Preparing Preservice Teachers for Inclusive Practice

Small Special Education Programs Caucus

Teacher Education Division, Council for Exceptional Children

The Small Special Education Programs Caucus (SSEPC) is seeking papers for its new monograph related to inquiry and practice of the preparation of preservice teachers for inclusive practice.

The increase in inclusive practice and changing service delivery models has had an impact on practice in special education. In response to this changing landscape, teacher educators have had to revise and restructure their programs to prepare undergraduate and graduate students to teach in a variety of classroom structures. This monograph will be a collection of current research related to preparing teachers for these structures, with a particular emphasis on teacher preparation in small college and university programs. All members of the Teacher Education Division are encouraged to contribute papers.

All papers must be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word to Dr. Michele Kamens at mkamens@rider.edu by the deadline date of August 1, 2010. Early submissions are encouraged. All submissions are subject to blind review, and must adhere to the following guidelines in order to be considered:

  • All submissions must follow the format of the American Psychological Association Publication Manual (6th ed.). Figures accompanying the manuscript should be camera-ready.
  • Papers must use Microsoft Word and be double spaced, approximately 15-20 pages, with 11/2 inch margins and 12 point Times New Roman font.
