During the COVID-19 pandemic, distance learning has been a challenge for many educators, families, and students. That includes the 1 in 5 students who learn differently.
- A new toolkit — developed in partnership between Understood and the National Center for Learning Disabilities — can help educators meet the needs of all students at this critical moment.
This toolkit is intended to help classroom teachers meet the needs of all students at this critical moment. Understood and NCLD revisited research from Forward Together: Helping Educators Unlock the Power of Students Who Learn Differently, published in 2019. The three key teacher mindsets and eight key teaching practices from that report are highly effective for all students, especially those who learn differently.
In this toolkit, you will:
- Learn about the key teacher mindsets and effective teaching practices for students who learn differently
- Pinpoint common instructional challenges and focus on teaching practices to address those challenges
- Use learning activities to help you apply those practices in distance learning
- Understand how the practices support social-emotional learning (SEL) and racial equity
- Learn how to use assessments outside the classroom environment to gauge student progress
