Diversity When you have diverse students in your class and there always will be, it is really just a way of  thinking that all students are different but in their own way. This could be due to their abilities, race,  culture, background, belief or just by their personal differences. ‘It should be clear, then, that  ‘diversity’ indicates a wide range of backgrounds and experiences that contribute to our students’  uniqueness. ‘Diversity’ does not simply refer to race. Thus, it is accurate to assert that all classrooms are a combination of diverse learners. If every student is unique, then every classroom is diverse.  The next step is to identify how to best help all students live up to their potential as unique  individuals’ (Okun, 2012). Even though students are different, teachers still are responsible for  developing ways to meet each of their needs. Differentiated instruction can be used for diverse  learners. Their content needs to be delivered in various ways such as through lectures, handouts,  hands on activities, or even videos. Teachers also have to use strategies to make sure the students  understand what they’re working to teach them. Technology is also a good tool to use to help  students learn. This enhances their learning because they can use it to build new skills and for  practice. The important thing to remember is that they all learn differently because some are hands  on learners while others may be auditory or visual. Teachers have to work hard to try and meet the

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
