To reflect upon understandings of learner diversity
To reflect upon understandings of learner diversity.
Evidence and reflection
Think about the four metaphors for teaching diverse learners in terms of similarities and variations. Are there any that particularly resonate with your own experiences, or that interested, or even surprised you?
Then think about a group of children you know well and reflect on your feelings about working with the diversity of learners in it. What would your metaphor be and why?
Reflect on what your metaphor expresses about: a) ‘sameness’, b) ‘difference’, and c) ‘belonging’.
