The workshop encourages teachers to think about how they can adapt their material to effectively engage with everyone in their class more efficiently.

By the end of the session, the teachers should have all they need to respond to the needs of their students and to explore the various options available to them for making sure that the way they are presenting their lessons is beneficial for all.
