Personalization in Action

6 Feb

I am always in pursuit of a quality video that helps describe or define my expectations. This video does just that. Pay close attention to the specific vocabulary the students are using in their demonstrations. It is straight forward and simple to identify at least some of the learning goals this teacher had in mind when she asked her students to complete this task. Enjoy!

    The comment that the “most discriminating thing we do is to treat everyone the same” resonates, not just with learning styles but also cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. A reminder to keep in mind the whole child.

    The teacher’s explanation about her lesson was clear: To think of diversity in her lesson in order to reach all students. She is child-centered and it shows in her interaction with her students. The use of gestures and music are powerful tools to help anchor vocabulary and concepts.

    Connecting key learning vocab to music anchor learning and makes it stick- I remember singing that song when we taught the weather cycle in second grade…,,I bet they still sing it…..,,personalizing it by adding their own “gestures” was a great strategy!
