- Create a learner profile for an individual student that you may
encounter. The profile should address the learner’s academic abilities,
cognitive function including any disabilities the learner may
experience, cultural and socioeconomic background (revisit Chapter 2),
and information regarding any other factor that may contribute to
- Describe the environment in which you will
work. Much of this will impact the type of strategies that you will
use. For example, the strategies that you might use while working in an
Early Childhood environment would be vastly different from those you
use if you are working with adult learners.
- Create a plan to
address student needs utilizing at least two strategies discussed in
Chapter 13. How will you incorporate different learning activities to
meet the needs of your student? Be sure that the strategies are
appropriate for your chosen field of study. For example, if you are
studying English Language Learning, your teaching strategies would be
influenced by the cultural and language barriers of the learner. You
may want to review lesson plans of other teachers and educational
professionals to look for practical ideas.
- As you would be
creative in your classroom or future work environment, be creative in
developing your action plan. You may use Word, PowerPoint, or any of
the sites below to present your plan.
