|How do you individualize your teaching? How do you handle the different ability levels of students in classes?
Thorough Lesson Planning.
Each child IS differntly abled- bring out the best in each individual by tapping all the 5 senses
I use to work from grass-root.
Plan the different way of teaching,induction set,activities and approaches.
Give examples go down to earth.
Ability grouping based on asseessment data.
Also encouraging students to work on their own projects, such as letting them work on the paper as a form of literacy work, and not making them double up and do the same work as the others as well.
I manage this by rotating who gets a turn on the paper each day, etc.
By knowing them first, then whatever they do, eccept it in the way they try it. For. e.g. a child even a child who know how to find information means he/she can do something. Allow the more intelligent child to do more. Set up a basic point which all should reach in a lesson. We have a very weird system going on in SA at the moment. I still have to answer to authority whether I know they are wrong or I am wrong.
That's what the skills of a teacher, bringing everyone at one platform.
I teach with my soul so my student always like when I teach them. try to make the material easy for them to understand. and for the clever student I make a different questioner based on their ability
A simple exam at the beginning of year will be a good idea. Previous results too gives a good sense of students ability. Handling different ability students at once in a single class is a good yet tough experience. Its the best way rather then having CREAM separated.
The easiest way will be to have a contingency plan for students who finish early and teach keeping lower students in mind rather than the bright ones.
I explain lucidly; I size up the individuals by questioning. I take the lowest as a benchmark and teach at that level.
By teaching in multiple modalities.
This question is never easy. Its all about having enough resources isn't it? I try to get the stronger students motivated to work on their own and check in with me when they need to. I devote much more personal time on weaker students to help them get on and not give up. Again its all about making things as simple as possible so people can learn faster.
Every class I teach is different in the way I set up the syllabus. I also use various educational materials to individualize the learners experience. In terms of abilities, it is difficult to create a course that is wholly inclusive of all the various challenges that students face. However, I do make a concerted effort to ensure that I have done my best to create a safe, open, accessible classroom. I also tutor students with various physical and mental abilities - this has been a challenge, yet something that I truly value and learn from each and every day.
I meet the needs of the different ability levels within my class first and foremost by seating students who need more attention closer to me, and preferably next to a student who is academically stronger. Students who take longer than the allotted class time to complete work are given additional time without penalty, and modifications to work and assessments are made on a case by case basis.
Knowing the learning styles of students is the first consideration to individualizing teaching. Coaching or mentoring works better to assist students to enhance their productive skills, such as speaking and writing. Always start the lessons with the simple or generic items.
