A1: I always think of this picture when I hear the word equity. Some kids are not going to need accommodations, but we as teachers have to make sure students are seeing the lesson at the same level...if that makes sense.

Lots of science tables, standing desks, round tables- places to spread out alone or collaborate in groups. Plus a huge mindfulness graffiti wall (theirs to design) and a makerspace (theirs) and flexible seating and room to move about

Adding mindfulness is a cool strategy, it gives them a way to address this long term, very cool.

A2. Ts at any level are required to provide teaching to a wide range of student abilities, yet it is going to take more time & create great(er) demands on their creativity & responsiveness. There may not be sufficient reduction in class sizes to facilitate this.

A2: I teach technology, so a lot of barriers are simply being patient and helping those who need it. I also try to have multiple activities that are geared toward different skill levels. No one is told they have to do a certain level. They are given the choice.

Accessibility is not just availability but purposeful, relatable and useful. When technology is accessible to students it doesn’t just mean hardware and internet but useful tools for learning.

A1: Accessibility is appropriate accommodations, modifications, and technology for students. These supports allow them to have an equal opportunity to complete or achieve a task.

I love this picture. I recently saw this updated one and it really hit home. As teacher's it's our job to make our lessons as equitable as we can and try to change the reality of it.

A5: To make sure my students succeed, the environment MUST be accessible. As a teacher, do what is needed to ensure full comprehension and retention of taught content.

I think a big barrier is student stress- they have so much on their plates: music, athletics- so much more. They are stretched thin, tired and often frustrated. Another barrier is students SEL can waver and I have integrated mindfulness strategies daily to help them

A2 We work with a range of schools as part of the project and often I see programs for the "high" and "low" Ss but what about the ones in the middle - all Ss need to have access to high quality instruction so we have been using data to make this point

A2. Parents sometimes deny or do not inform a school or pre-school about their child's disability or ask the school to provide education above the level of capacity of the student with disability. This creates problems of a sensitive nature for teachers and schools.
