K: I found that the easiest, most effective way to differentiate instruction for my students is to make sure that for each lesson plan I vary learning activities to suit each learning style. [The acronym VARK stands for Visual, Aural, Read/write, and Kinesthetic sensory modalities that are used for learning information.] For example, we may start with filling out a worksheet, but then I'd also have my students read to each other, include a hands-on activity, or even implement technology in some way. I could use centers as part of my lesson, or even set up a real-life experience, depending on what the lesson is about. The point is to vary what student's are doing, so that I'm not hitting on one learning style repetitively. K: I would use the same methods that I'd use with my LD students, but I also feel that it's important to foster the idea of a class community: we are all equal, we can learn together, and work together. Therefore, I would employ inclusive strategies where students are encouraged to work together and learn with and from each other, such as "think, pair, share," or "I do, we do, you do."
