I’ll begin by quoting your final sentences: “Temple Grandin is such a strong reminder that as educators, we need to continue to find what motivates each child, and find a way to light every single one of those individual flames.”
I agree with you wholeheartedly on this: teachers need to recognize each child’s learning style and adjust to each one accordingly. Not each child, as each person in general, learns the same way. For example, I have always known that I am a visual learner and now that I have been learning German the past eight months, I depend on that chacteristic in order to learn more effectively. That is what I do with the kids as well.
Temple Grandin is a person who has inspired thousands of people around the world and thank you for this wonderful video of her!
Yes, you are right – the world does need all kinds of minds! It is this diversity that makes humans so special!
