Inclusivity is a vital element of all teaching, of course – but instead of considering ‘differentiation’, why not try thinking about ‘personalisation’?
The idea of tailoring a lesson to meet the specific, individual needs of every single student in the room might seem daunting, however, it is achievable, given enough planning and a few handy props – and especially important when you are working with the lowest ability pupils.
The following lesson is an example of how SEND and personalisation go hand in hand. It is an English lesson that meets the needs of very low ability pupils and always starts and ends with music.
