Managing a Diverse Classroom: Facing Upcoming Challenges

Table of Contents

Description

This course refers to teachers working in diverse classrooms due to the presence of disadvantaged learners, including migrant and immigrant students and children with special educational needs.

Diversity challenges traditional teaching strategies and methods imposing the need to successfully manage a common context for all students thanks to innovative solutions.

I really liked how the mentor introduced us to a variety of useful resources for managing the classroom. It was great to see such a wide range of tools that we can incorporate into our own teaching. This exposure to different resources will definitely make our classes more engaging and effective.

We participated in this course with 4 colleagues, in Berlin, and we want to thank the organization for the 5 days we used for the training. The course was very interesting, full of insights and possible practical applications. A special thanks to Ada Rigacci, our trainer, for her professionalism, kindness, and ability to provide us with content-rich training in a totally accessible way. We recommend the course to anyone with an interest in this topic.
