225: Accommodating for Gaps in Understanding Due to the Pandemic

Are you juggling a lot of different levels of understanding and learning styles in your classroom after the pandemic?

There’s a fine line between accommodations and modifications for students, but both are important to understand and can help you keep all your kids on track.

In this episode, I’m focusing on accommodations in the classroom and talking about what they look like, how to implement them, and how they differ from modifications.

If you need some ideas on how to accommodate for gaps in understanding due to the pandemic, I’ve got you covered.

You can also come back to this episode anytime you’re struggling with accommodations in your classroom. It doesn’t have to be pandemic-related!

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • What accommodations are 
  • How accommodations differ from modifications
  • Different types of accommodations we can provide for students 
  • What accommodations look like in the classroom
  • Ideas for your students who require accommodations
  • Making space in your classroom for different learning styles
  • How to help your students focus 
  • Being flexible with your students 

As adults, we have preferences about how we work. Maybe you’re a visual learner or maybe you’re not. Maybe you like background noise while you work or maybe you don’t. With that said, it’s not fair to expect all of our students to thrive in the same settings, so I hope this episode gives you some ideas to accommodate different learning styles and levels of understanding in your classroom.
