Peeked inside a typical classroom lately? If so, you're likely to see one teacher surrounded by an increasingly diverse group of students--each with unique learning needs.
What's more, that 'typical' classroom is filled with students who are anything but typical.
For one thing, there's really no such thing as an average student.
Each class might contain students who struggle with reading or math, students who don't yet speak English, and students with disabilities. On the other end of the spectrum are the gifted students who may need more challenges to stay engaged.
How on earth can one teacher meet the needs of all these diverse learners?
