Curriculum Design and Diversity

As I sit and think about my curriculum design project, I have a difficult time deciding on a student to focus on for my project. I want give even the lowest achieving student the opportunity to do well with this project. I wouldn’t be abiding by any social justice and equity if I didn’t. As I have discussed in a previous post, that the getting all of the students to an end goal would be looked at as an equal opportunity, but each child may take a different path to get to that end goal. It is important that we help them around all of the bumps and turns that may get in their way. Those students who may experience more bumps and turns than others are probably lower achieving students. This doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to complete the project, but we may have to help them more along the way. It’s my goal that while designing my project, I keep this in mind. I keep making notes to differentiate along the way. I think it is important to keep track of all the different paths that a student may take to reach his or her end goal and how we can get them there.
