4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (Eastern)
This webinar from Education Week will discuss the 2010 MetLife Survey of the American Teacher, released this month, and explore how schools and individual teachers can better accommodate diverse learning needs. The Survey found that 60% of K-12 educators say strengthening resources and programs to help students with diverse learning needs become college- and career-ready should be a top priority in education; and that math teachers, in particular, struggle with differentiating instruction to reach all learners. Because of demographic changes and evolving school instructional policies, many teachers today face an increasingly wide range of student learning differences, whether academic, behavioral, physical, or cultural, in their classrooms.
