Standard # 2 Learning Differences

INTASC Standard # 2: The teacher uses understanding of individual differences and diverse cultures and communities to ensure inclusive learning environments that enable each learner to meet high standards.

INTASC Standard Interpretation: I must understand that every student comes with their own personal story that includes everything from from their cultural heritage to the home environment in which they live. Just as each student comes from an environment unique to themselves they also have their own unique learning abilities and differences. As a professional educator it is my responsibility to support students by varying my instruction and challenging each study where they are educationally.

INTASC Standard Reflection: This lesson shows an example of how I insert modifications into the Bell Ringer or Warm Up activity. I understand that students who live with learning challenges already have difficulty in classroom settings. With the modifications pre – written in the student’s folder I hope to deliver the modifications discretely.
