Reflection: Students with Disabilities Do you Hear What I Hear?: Exploring the Structure and Function of the Ear - Section 4: Explain


     It has been long established that students come into the classroom with varying learning needs. Through time, we as an education system have trialed a variety of strategies to accommodate all for an all inclusive classroom setting. At this stage of the lesson, students are tasked with comprehending the connection between the mechanical mechanisms of hearing with how the brain processes sound. To ease students into this complex task & as a resolve to the accommodation conundrum I approached this explanation activity with a combination of learning styles. This was inclusive of auditory/musical, visual, verbal, logical and social styles. It provided students of varying learning abilities to access the information in a form that they could identify with. The result was a high level of engagement, interest and a high quality  product that students often referenced beyond the lesson. (See student product attached) It helped students comprehension tremendously.
