What are different ways students can demonstrate knowledge within the same assignment?
How do teachers provide those multiple means of expression?A universal design for learning helps in my work environment in many ways. It helps me to recognize that not all students learn in the same way and not everyone has one kind of intelligence that fits into one specific style of teaching. Therefore, I know that I must accommodate the many ways of learning by: • Providing multiple examples in my lessons
• Highlighting critical issues in a way that is easily understood by all students
• Providing multiple media and formats in my learning objectives
• Providing plenty of opportunities for practice
• Providing ongoing feedback to students so that they are aware of areas that need more improvement
• Offering multiple ways for students to demonstrate their skills
• Offering adjustable levels of challenges
• Providing rewards
• Asking for feedbackWhat are different ways students can demonstrate knowledge within the same assignment? I great way that students can demonstrate knowledge within the same assignment is to have them create an oral presentation that will be given to the group. They can create this presentation using one common theme, and they will have the creative freedom to design the presentation to their liking. This is also a wonderful way to assess their level of learning. If a student does a poor job researching and presenting the material or if he/she is unprepared, it is possible that he/she did not grasp the concept well. Another way is a group discussion where questions/answers are provided. This shows student engagement in the discussion as well as what students are not actively participating. Non-participators may not understand the concept well or feel comfortable contributing to the discussion because of their lack of understanding.How do teachers provide those multiple means of expression?Some of the ways that teachers can provide multiple means of expression are by:• Being aware that the group of learners have diverse learning needs
• Providing multiple means of learning techniques in order to reach all learners
• Providing different ways for students to engage in the discussion or lesson
• Developing a simple learning environment that is capable of flexibilityhttp://www.udlcenter.org/aboutudl/udlguidelines/principle3 Collaboration among teachers can be wonderful as individuals step out of their individual boxes and create new ones…but it can also be extremely challenging if there are hidden agendas and differing perspectives blocking communication.

The article also emphasized the use of Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) which are being used in many districts to support collaboration among teacher as well. Your opinion and insight you might have on collaboration. This is a very good question! I agree that collaboration benefits how educators work together. It fosters a positive relationship among educators, and it helps everyone work toward one common goal of student achievement. As well, I always felt a greater level of personal satisfaction when I work together with other educators, have the support of my peers, and are involved in decision making. I can understand their points-of-view and adjust my opinions and methods to better accommodate the team. It also elevates the level of trust among staff because we are able to sit together and discuss issues that are of common concerns and help to address the problems that each other are having. Granted, there is always one bad apple in the teaching bunch that uses collaboration for his/her own agenda or uses the time to display pettiness or gossip about others, but a true team of serious educators will be able to work past this and stay on track in order to help each other. I hope this helps! Thank you again for using Brain Mass today.
