create unique educational needs; and  implications for teachers of
students with such needs. Please note: Dr. Jones's course requires
permission of instructor and, as a prerequisite, a 3 credit course

EDU 495/795 Emotional Intelligence
(1 graduate or undergraduate credit)
Dr. Rich Lytle

Emotional intelligence, encompassing self-awareness, problem solving,

work and life than cognitive intelligence (IQ) or grades. Find out how
to model the behaviors and skills of emotional intelligence and what
schools and teachers can do to promote emotional intelligence among
students.

(3 graduate credits)
Dr. Janet Pray
August 28 - December 8, 2000

This advanced course is designed to be taken concurrently with a
practice or a practicum in an agency or organization working with deaf
and/or hard of hearing clients. Students build on and apply knowledge,
values, and skills of the generalist model of practice (learned and used
in the foundation curriculum) with a major focus on the  application of
systems, ecological, and crisis theories to specific areas of practice
with deaf and hard of hearing populations. Strengths perspectives,
empowerment, and culturally competent practice are emphasized. Please
