Using the 8 Ways in Planning Lessons


At first glance my reaction to this was, “Oh no! How am I going to incorporate this?” After sitting back and thinking about it, I realised that it’s not imperative to incorporate every single one of the 8 ways, but rather to use them as a guide for overall planning. If used judiciously, and wisely, these 8 ways give the teacher the opportunity to plan effectively for all learning styles within the class. My realisation was that this is not something onerous, rather it simplifies the planning process. Instead of scratching my head and staring blankly wondering how to cater for the different ways of learning that there most definitely will be in an average class, I can now plan with a purpose, knowing that I can spread my lessons over the learning areas that cater not only to Aboriginal students, but to ALL students that I teach.
