One thought on “Week 1

  1. Genevieve,
    On your infographic, the comment about how DI is for all students jumped out at me. You mentioned how we need to design our curriculum to provide opportunities for students with a range of abilities, and this is something I hope to learn more about in this course. Oftentimes I see gifted students leave the room to go to the EL room and struggling students come to my room for resource support, getting a replacement reading program and therefore missing out on grade-level content. I wonder if all students could be served in the regular classroom if we had more of a DI model, but then I think that they would miss out on the direct instruction they need to progress, like direct phonics instruction to better their reading. This will be a question I return to this semester.
