Inclusion Strategies :star:
Personalized Delivery Methods :check:
Using various delivery methods of lesson content can be beneficial in helping to identify students who have special needs.
Using traditional teaching methods and changing to more visual or auditory methods can point out which students excel in each type of learning. This can help you to tailor your lessons to improve all students.
Alternative Assessments :check:
Assessments do not need to be traditional exams every time. Other forms of assessment can be beneficial for different types of learners.
Midterm or final projects can be a great type of assessment for tracking understanding as well as promoting group learning.
Classroom Arrangement :check:
Desk and chair arrangement can make or break a lesson and its' effectiveness. Placing desks together can promote discussion and group learning.
Designating the back of the classroom as a movement area allows for students with different needs to utilize the different areas of the classroom.
Behavioral Strategies : :star:
Increase positive reinforcement for acceptable behavior and never reinforce inappropriate behavior.
Nonverbal cues can help to show students they are acting appropriately or inappropriately without distracting the entire class.
Behavioral Management System :check:
Having a behavioral management system can help to make rules very transparent with the students. Class Dojo is a great way to incorporate fun visuals, while also motivating the students to succeed.
Implementing a level system can show the students how behaving can lead to rewards and help teachers reach their target goals for each student.
Proximity Control :check:
Changing my position as a teacher in the classroom can help redirect students who lose focus or need more attention.
Students who are frequently late can be placed near the door to make them feel less of a distraction. This can be beneficial for the teacher and the student.
