Accommodating for Diverse Learners

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.
