Understanding Learners: Inclusive and Culturally Responsive Tutoring and Mentoring

As Wesleyan students who tutor or mentor young people, you have to constantly adapt to different situations. Children have different learning needs and respond best to different teaching strategies. This workshop is designed by College of Education Studies faculty to help you better create inclusive learning environments for all young people. Topics covered may include the continuum of disability, executive function, literacy skills, cultural barriers, task analysis, and Universal Design for Learning. Participants will learn more about the special education field, different models for learning, and will leave with strategies to use in the classroom.
