Resources for Considering the Audience

The instructor’s approach to learning is based on recent cognition research and understands how language competencies, physical abilities, cultures, communities, and social identity influence learners’ acquisition of knowledge and skills. The instructor uses this knowledge to differentiate the curriculum: engaging students in equitable and positive classroom behaviors; designing valuable and relevant learning tasks; and clearly communicating academic expectations to learners. The instructor creates a learning environment that supports individual and collaborative learning by ensuring students feel accepted by the teacher and peers.
