Designing Classroom Curriculum for Personalized Learning. Module 1D.
Ferguson, Dianne L.; And Others
This teacher training module is designed to help teachers design curriculum and teaching to accommodate student diversity. The approach locates decisions with groups of teachers, creates new roles for both general and special educators, and redesigns the Individualized Education Program. After an introduction and overview, the first section presents an overall framework for thinking about curriculum design that will apply to any student's learning style, learning preference, and personal interests. The next four parts describe four procedural steps to the creation of individually tailored learning for all students. These are: (1) gathering information about the student (using an activity-based assessment approach); (2) planning instruction and designing curriculum (noting possible competing approaches to planning as well as long-range and daily/weekly curriculum planning); (3) achieving balance with mixed-ability learning groups (focusing on the importance of organizing, planning, and teaching); and (4) ongoing recording and reporting (organized into three recording dimensions and five user groups). Each section also includes relevant forms. An appendix provides age-appropriate activity lists and additional forms. (Contains 62 references.) (DB)
