Ed-D 420 Inclusion of Exceptional Learners
Think Pair Share Sternberg ~ who was at this conference in Manila and is a giant in the field of intelligence testing and assessment ~ suggested this and I am curious about what your thougths are on it. Differentiated instruction is not a meaningful pursuit as it has practical issues (can it really be done in the classroom) and philosophical ones. What is better is to teach thru multiple modalities ~ not learning styles ~ as then weaknesses are not covered up or ignored. The world does not adjust delivery for your weaknesses and students must learn to recognize and accentuate their strengths.
