Diversity: Ensuring Everyone Learns

Enter Module

While the designations attached to groups of students attending Ohio schools may be useful to teachers and administrators, they do not provide adequate information for delivering instruction in ways that meet the individual learning needs of each child. This module will focus on holding high expectations for all students through providing students with ample opportunities to learn and by selecting instructional frameworks that presume the competence of all learners. It will discuss the following questions:

  • How do school systems build infrastructures that support learning for all students, especially the most diverse?
  • How do our efficacy beliefs affect our expectations for all students?
  • How do instructional frameworks support districts/schools as they work to improve learning for all students?
  • What is the role of leadership in ensuring all students learn?

This module aligns with Ohio’s Leadership Development Framework in the following areas:

  • Area 1: Data and the Decision-Making Process
  • Area 2: Focused Goal Setting Process
  • Area 3: Instruction and the Learning Process
