  5. 5. Dunn & Dunn
  6. 6. Learning Styles Strategies <ul><li>In Pairs, brainstorm strategies and activities for teaching math to students with diverse learning strategies </li></ul><ul><li>Join with another group to share your findings </li></ul><ul><li>Put together point form notes with both groups strategies, we will copy & share all the strategies </li></ul>
  7. 7. Students with Exceptionalities <ul><li>Most classes have students with exceptionalities </li></ul><ul><li>It is important for us to understand and empathize with our students </li></ul><ul><li>Simulation Activity - Go to the table with a card that matches yours and proceed with the simulation for that exceptionality </li></ul><ul><li>Group Share - How did it feel? What did you learn? What will you take back to your practice? </li></ul>

  10. 10. Embracing Diversity <ul><li>Know your students’ cultural background and consider culture when planning </li></ul><ul><li>Acknowledge and highlight contributions of different cultures to math knowledge base </li></ul><ul><li>Create tasks that are culturally relevant to all students (differentiate) </li></ul>
  11. 11. Differentiate Instruction <ul><li>I will model a Differentiated Hands on Lesson </li></ul><ul><li>Your job is to be the student you were during the simulation </li></ul><ul><li>Think about how your needs are met or not met </li></ul>
