An SCC in special education is a Self-Contained Classroom. That is to say, all children with disabilities (within reason) are located within the same classroom rather than being mainstreamed or placed into a general education class. These classrooms are beneficial to the students since the instructions are more targeted and the teachers have expertise in dealing with special needs. SCC classrooms are common in private special education schools.
A special class day class also called a SDC class is a special education classroom where students spend all or part of their day receiving special education services. They are not in the general classroom and they are with other students who are in special education. Classrooms are typically smaller than a general education classroom and students can have different disabilities or they can be a specialized SDC classroom for specific disabilities such as autism. They are usually mild/moderate or moderate/severe and have the teacher and paraeducators in the room working with students.

I don't know why this is in geometry but in education I use incentives in the classroom. In a normal classroom I use grades and homework passes. In a classroom with special education students I use physical incentives like coupons to local ice cream stores.
One of the laws governing special education degrees is the Individuals with Disablities Education Act. The act states that students with disabilities should be educated in the same classrooms as the rest of the population whenever possible. Due to this goal of inclusion, potential special education teachers should consider getting a dual licensure in another field, such as elementary education. A dual degree shows familiarity with classroom settings outside of a special education classroom.
Yes, this is called mainstreaming. Not only does the special needs child learn skills in a mainstreamed classroom, but so do the other members of the class. In most cases the special needs child only spends a few hours in the regular classroom and then goes to a special education teacher for the rest of the day. As a classroom teacher I have always opened my room to special needs students because I think all benefit from the experience.
Collaboration means providing special education in regular education classrooms. Today, more special education students are taught in regular classrooms, and collaboration is increasing. Collaboration helps to ensure children with learning disabilities get a free appropriate public education, including specialized instruction, in a regular classroom.

There are opportunities to work in the special education field that do not require certification such as support staff or classroom aides. For certification, there are many online institutions that offer degree programs and certifications. Each state has it's own standards and requirements for special education teachers, so checking your state's department of education website may answer many questions.
