As a school leader, you will be required to provide training or professional development to teachers on a variety of subjects. One such topic is helping teachers use sound educational theory to inform their practice, specifically in the education of diverse student populations. The purpose of this assignment is to create a polished and professional, narrated presentation that could be used to educate teachers on how to use theory to develop appropriate learning experiences for all students. Based on your field of study and student population, create a PowerPoint presentation in which you:
Provide a summary of four learning theories that support the instruction of diverse students. (One of which must be Bloom’s Taxonomy). Include:
Name of theory and theorist.
Basic description of the theory.
Explain why applying this theory to classroom practice would enhance the learning of diverse student populations.
Describe two instructional activities teachers could implement that are aligned with this theory.
This presentation should be designed so it can be posted online in an educational forum or on your school website for teacher professional development. Incorporate appropriate narration, animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists. Review the “Creating a Successful PowerPoint Presentation” document in the resources for additional assistance in completing this assignment.
