Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners Resources



View the Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners PowerPoint slides we used in our recent workshop for San Diego State University’s Educational Leadership Program and their guests from San Diego USD.

“We’ve always known that each student in our classrooms is different yet all too often we ignore this reality and treat them as if they were all the same. This just isn’t good enough anymore. Rutherford’s latest book, Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners, provides educators with the tools they need to close this persistent knowing-doing gap and reach every learner. Students are different and the only way that all students can learn is if we deliver learning opportunities that are relevant, rigorous, and respectful.”
