The Adaptive Dimension K-12 Student Supports

"The Adaptive Dimension refers to the concept of making adjustments to any or all of the following variables:
learning environment, instruction, assessment and resources. Adjustments to these variables are intended to make learning meaningful and appropriate and to support student achievement. Tomlinson (1999) states, “Differentiation is an organized yet flexible way of proactively adjusting teaching and learning to meet kids where they are and help them to achieve maximum growth as learners” (p.14). In the Saskatchewan context, differentiation is addressed through the Adaptive Dimension which enables all teachers to respond to student diversity, including their strengths and needs, interests, backgrounds, life experiences and motivations. Within the context of the Adaptive Dimension, curricular outcomes are not changed; adaptive variables are adjusted so that the curricular outcomes can be achieved." (p.2)

This learning path is a professional development learning journey and set of classroom resources, grounded in social and emotional learning and curated by experts in the field of equity and inclusion, restorative practices, and education technology.

Educators must be courageous and confident in their journey to fully participate in dismantling racism in their learning environments.

In this learning path, you'll:
Deconstruct power, privilege, marginalization, and fragility
Develop individual accountability for becoming an anti-racist.

How To Teach Us PD – hthgse.online
Rating

"The How to Teach Us online course was designed to help K-12 teachers integrate student voice into their classrooms. “How To Teach Us” was named as such because, in an effort to showcase strategies to enhance classroom practices around student voice, three separate documentaries were constructed to coincide with the three weekly themes of the course that specifically follow elementary, middle, and high school students.

The three focus areas for the course were: significant learning, day-to-day routines/schedules, and student-centered assessment practices. The course is designed to be completed over a total of 9 hours of work, with three separate assignments that ultimately culminate in a teacher presentation of learning (POL)."

This course is self-paced and delivered via email.
It will take 4 hours+
