Accessible Curriculum

Accessible instruction considers the variety of learners in a classroom and designs lessons that will have multiple access points for multiple people. It asks you to first consider who the students in your classroom are beyond their assigned reading levels or test scores. By knowing your students holistically you can see the individual strengths they bring to the classroom environment and honor and build on their prior knowledge. Designing accessible instruction that recognizes the variety of strengths of the individuals that you teach means throwing away the single lesson format. This means that there will be multiple activities going on around the same content at the same time. This will allow all of your students to find their point of access to the learning of the day.
