Learning Differences: Teach For All Program in 34 Countries

Learn_differentlyTeach For All is a global network that recruits young professionals to work in high need schools. It was co-founded in 2007 by Wendy Kopp, founder of Teach for America.  It has launched a new fellowship program that will train a corp of coaches to help other teachers to teach students with “learning differences.”  A group of 15 fellows will work for two years to develop resources to guide other teachers across the Teach For All network.

It has been recognized around the world that learning differences inhibit the education of many students. Amrit Poudel, a teacher-coach in Nepal, describes the need this way, “Largely, Nepal education considers a one-size-fits-for-all notion of teaching. So, many children are dropping out of schools because of different learning styles.”

It sounds like Teach For All needs to know more about the multiple intelligences and how MIDAS Profiles can be used to develop strength-based instruction and curriculum.
