Implementing Differentiated Instruction

 in the Classroom

Differentiated Instruction has become a necessity in today's demanding educational landscape. We know that students progress and perform at higher levels as educators respond to the varied needs of all learners. The wide range of students' readiness levels, interests, and learning profiles demand differentiated content, activities, and assessments. This course offers a range of support to educators interested in differentiating instruction in today's diverse classrooms. Participants will examine a number of differentiated activities and use these to design experiences for students in the classroom.

Participants will:

• Examine brain research and its impact on student learning.

• Establish a culture and climate that supports differentiated practice through routines, procedures, and respectful and rigorous expectations.

• Target key skills and/or concepts that are differentiated by readiness, interest or learning profile.

• Identify learning goals/learning outcomes.

• Design differentiated content, instructional activities, and products to meet a set of learning goals.

• Ensure that differentiated assessments measure desired learning goals
