Earlier today I wrote a blog about addressing diverse needs in the classroom and Dr. Mel Levine's theoretical contributions to education. I understandably received controversial comments. In my effort to more sensitively and more accurately express myself I was editing the post and accidentally wiped it out and cannot quickly replicate it, nor am I sure that now is the best time to do so.
My intention was to draw attention to parts of Levine's theory I found helpful, and not to eulogize the man as the accusations against him were and are inexcusable. I am sorry the post was erased and with time, I will post what I found intriguing about addressing all kinds of minds in a classroom again, in a more sensitive well written post. The post was not intended to be about the man but about his theories of looking at a learner's profile, to teach to strengths while boosting weaknesses, and to teaching kids, parents and students to advocate for student needs. His writings and the work done by Schools Attuned have helped many struggling students.
