Concordia School of Education students participated in an in-class activity that explored how to serve a variety of learning styles and needs in the classroom.
Nine student groups harnessed their creativity to display their understanding of reaching all students in the classroom. Each group looked at a different way teachers can apply individualized education practices on a daily basis within the classroom setting.

A Peep classroom – The orange Peeps are working independently and the green Peeps are getting a little more attention to help them learn. The teacher is not singling out any student for the style of learning that they need.

This race track has people starting at different lengths of the track to make it a fair race. A student’s experience in the classroom also becomes a fair race when each student is given the resources that they need to succeed by their educators.
