Fostering Educator Understanding and Support of Learner Variability
The New Teacher Center (NTC) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving student learning by accelerating the effectiveness of new teachers, experienced teachers, and school leaders. Its grant supports identifying, piloting, and evaluating the impact of mentor practices that help teachers build the academic and social-emotional success of students with learning differences in order to disseminate those practices throughout its network.
“After taking a learning survey myself, and then administering it to my students, I found that I was mostly teaching to the students who learned just like me…it was eye-opening to see the level of engagement increase as I planned and executed lessons that were more focused on my students' learning strengths.”
