Differentiated Instruction: The Curriculum Connection directly addresses one of five nonnegotiables of differentiated instruction: the role of curriculum in designing and delivering high-quality differentiated instruction. In this course, you will explore the attributes of high-quality curriculum and what it means to teach for understanding. You'll discover how teachers in a differentiated classroom write objectives that adhere to standards documents. Finally, you will examine the role of rigor and relevance in designing differentiated curriculum that leads to these objectives.
By the end of this course, through video examples, in-depth readings and reflections, and practical applications, you'll be ready to design or adapt classroom work so that it reflects the attributes of what experts consider to be high-quality curriculum.
