iJED Learning Lab: Supporting Diverse Learners
Arlene Remz of Gateways: Access to Jewish Education
Learning Lab case study:
No classroom has just one, two or even three learning styles present. Each student learns in a way that is as unique as they are. This learning lab explores what steps educators can take to make sure that none of their students are getting left behind. Participants will return to their schools seeing their classroom in a whole new light and possessing the tools and resources that will improve learning for all students.
In this Learning Lab, participants will work in groups to explore real life case studies of the challenges that arise when supporting students with an array of different learning styles and needs. Participants will learn from each other and from experts in the field over the course of three Lab sessions and dive deeply into discussions about inclusion practices, systems, personnel, communication, and other challenges and opportunities.
Who should attend?
This Lab is not just for special educators - it takes a whole school to create inclusive culture and practice. This Lab is designed for everyone in the day school community (grades K-12) who is invested in an inclusive environment where all students learn and achieve. Participation is recommended for school administrators, admissions directors, teacher leaders, specialists, lay leaders, as well as directors of support services and special educators. Together we will deeply explore these important issues of inclusion that all day schools face.
