Clarifying Information

Students come into the classroom with varying backgrounds, languages, and understandings of the content being presented. This can be for a variety of reasons, and keeping these reasons in mind when designing content for students should be a priority. To help with this, when designing lessons for a diverse group of students, the designer should avoid using idioms or culturally explicit phrasing, and keep the language at the level of the learner. Supports for clarifying information include built in vocabulary and glossary aids, Text to Speech functionality, illustrations, and translations.
