Educational Consultant: Carol Ann Tomlinson Building on our best-selling video series Differentiating Instruction, this series takes you deeper into elementary, middle, and high school classrooms to see how a differentiated approach plays a key role in improving overall classroom practice. Program 1, Planning Curriculum and Instruction, gets teachers started in thinking about the essential understandings of their curriculum and their students’ existing skills and readiness levels. Expert Carol Ann Tomlinson spells out the principles that guide a differentiated classroom. Use Program 2, Managing the Classroom, to help teachers visualize how a differentiated classroom actually works and understand how to handle multiple tasks and activities. Experienced teachers offer lots of proven ideas and strategies. Lecturing to the whole class, providing assistance to individual students, teaching small groups—handling the various teaching roles in a differentiated classroom can be challenging for any teacher. Program 3, Teaching for Learner Success, explains how teachers become adept at these multiple roles and move with ease from one to the other.
