Differentiation in Action
To group or not to group, that is the question. According to Carol Ann Tomilson, a leading authority on differentiating instruction, students need new and innovative means in order to comprehend and process information and make sense of what they learn. In academically responsible classrooms, all students should be appropriately challenged and become more successful at accessing, processing, and expressing information.
In this course, participants will learn everything there is to know about differentiating their classrooms. They will learn the secrets to recognizing and building on the individual talents of each student, while preparing all students for the rigors of new standards and assessments. In addition, teachers will gain student centered ideas, lessons that differentiate, challenging ways to motivate students, current research on differentiation, constructivist practices, ideas for putting the research into action, examples and strategies that assist in differentiation, assessment ideas for differentiation, ideas for tiered lessons, web sites for differentiated instruction, and so much more!
