week 2 discussion 1

  • Describe three ways in which instruction can be designed to increase learning and engagement by adapting to different students’ multiple intelligences. 
  • Read the article titled “Tapping into Community Funds of Knowledge” and comment on Dr. Genzuk’s claim: “Many educators continue to devalue the household knowledge of non-mainstream children. Households are often viewed as units from which the student must be rescued, rather than a reserve of knowledge that can foster the child’s cognitive development.” Recommend two specific methods for incorporating funds of knowledge in your or any classroom. Discuss possible challenges to implementing this approach.
