The Messenger 06.18.08
If you’re a teacher looking for practical strategies to reach diverse learners, the University of Tennessee at Martin has what you need.
“Creating the Inclusive Classroom: Strategies for Success” is a new online course designed to help teachers unlock the learning potential in their classrooms.
“Many of today’s teachers don’t know how to reach kids with special needs and it’s not for lack of trying,” said Ellen Arnold, veteran educator and author of the course. “There’s a set of techniques that any teacher can easily incorporate and my new course wraps them all into a tidy package that will empower teachers to deliver their best.”
Participants will discover strategies that are effective, yet easy to implement. They’ll find out how to help every child identify and build on personal strengths and challenge weaknesses.
The course includes a classroom that is open day and night. Students can interact with the instructor and their fellow students in Web-based discussion areas where they can ask as many course-related questions as they’d like. A response is usually promised within one business day and often arrives sooner.
Students can take “Creating the Inclusive Classroom: Strate-gies for Success” from the convenience of their home or office, at any time of the day or night.
