Early in my college career I learned the importance of accommodating for different types of students: minorities, low-achieving, mentally-handicapped students, students with learning disabilities, students with behavior problems, gifted/talented students, etc.
One of my earlier education classes, Exceptional Learners, focused on accommodating for diverse learners. In this class, I did a presentation on gifted/talented students. This can be viewed by clicking here.
This presentation opened my eyes to ways that I could personally adapt my lessons for these high-achieving individuals and work to not only assist students that are struggling, but make sure that all students are encouraged, motivated, and challenged by my curriculum.
