Ms. Williams from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Using Multiple Modes of Modality for Diverse Learners

Help me give my students a Promethean board with stand to support their various modalities of learning. As we all know, Diverse Learning students learn best when they are able to engage in their learning hands-on.

My Students

I am a Special Education Teacher working for Chicago Public Schools within an elementary school located on the Southwest side of Chicago. Over ninety-five percent of our student population are classified as low-income and receive free lunch. I am a Blended Preschool Special Education teacher which allows me to support Diverse Learners in a General Education Classroom (Team Teaching). I currently have fourteen scholars on my caseload which have diagnosis including Developmental Delays and/or Speech Impairments and Social-Emotional Disorders.

A large number (fifty percent) of the students that I service within the blended classroom (general education and diverse learners) are English Language Learners.

Both the Diverse Learners and English Language Learners benefit from a Multimodality (textual, aural, linguistic, spatial and visual resources) approach to learning.

I believe that every child is an individual that is capable of learning. Each child learns at his or her own pace. Teaching has always been my passion and I am honored to say that I am able to teach and give back to these students that reside in the same neighborhood in which I live.

“If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” -Ignacio Estrada

My Project

These materials will allow over Diverse Learners access to the curriculum using various modes of modality. As we all know, students learn in different ways and by creating an environment to support these learning is vital especially since the pandemic. The promethean board will be life to the classroom by allowing students to engage using their auditory, visual, tactile and most importantly, kinesthetic modalities.

The theory of learning styles has become a very important and popular in education and research has continues to support this learning style for all learners.
