chance to focus on those that need more help. It is also a chance for students to build confidence by executing task quickly and efficiently (Holter, 2017). This is an example of UDL because I have laid out many different means of knowledge and research tools that students can walk around and figure out which works for them versus only putting out one kind of tool and having to adapt if it is not Modifications: Student learning and the promotion of owning your own learning is a big part of this lesson. The teacher simply provides the many different tools and students can choose to use what works best for them or try something new. Either way it is the students’ responsibility to choose what will help them succeed and meet their individual or group goals. Enrichment: Having different means to gain more knowledge on the topic of Amelia Earhart is important here. Students need to be able to look for information in ways that works best for them. It would be helpful to find a specialist on Amelia Earhart, or on those times, or on the main ideas of her life. A museum trip or fieldtrip with a plane or Amelia Earhart exhibit could be very beneficial for those students who are more hands on and visual.
WEEK SIX ASSIGNMENT 9 working for the child(ren). Including technology like this in the lesson helps students see learning versus fragments here and there, making it more relatable and meaningful (Ortega, 1995). Technological Pedagogical Knowledge: Technology keeps students engaged and interested in learning because it is relatable in its many shapes and forms. Technology has given so much flexibility to teacher as it continues to grow and advance to the next stages. The following methods increase organization and structure between all people involved in the learning of the class. There are many apps that allow students to organize their thoughts, create different kinds of presentations, as well as help with writing papers, making presentations, and correcting grammar. They can work on their presentations at home as well if they have access to computers or laptops. For the NETS (2008) standards, it allows the student to increase focus student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify their conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes and creativity. Focusing on this standard will help students look for deeper meaning in their statements or main ideas that they choose. It also helps me focus on the variety of ways to present information and for them to research information. Integrate TPACK for Differentiation We know that we all do not learn the same. When teachers recognize this and familiarize themselves with how each of their students learns, they allow students to be academically successful in their ways. Research shows that when differentiated learning environments are developed appropriately for all students, making their specific needs met, these students thrive academically (Subban & Round, 2015). Using TPACK framework along with differentiation in my lesson plan uses all components needed to give quality curriculum. First, for PCK, the
