Those of you who follow me on Twitter (@julesteaches) will have seen this image already, but I wanted to share it here, too. I ran a lesson about Learning Disabilities and Differences for a group of 7th & 8th graders at my school in honor of LD & Dyslexia Awareness month (mixed group of students with & without learning disabilities). The students rotated between reading about famous people with learning disabilities, reading about the advantages of dyslexia, participating in simulations about various learning disabilities, and making posters with quotes from people with Learning Disabilities or Differences. Below is the Inspirational Quote wall they completed (apologies for the blurriness/lighting failure). Much of the language mirrors what we have been talking with the students about Carol Dweck’s Mindset Theory as it focuses on perseverance and effort. Such a lovely constant reminder!
