In Differentiated Instruction: An Introduction, you will build a conceptual understanding of the model of differentiated instruction (DI), including the philosophical underpinnings of this model. You will explore characteristics and key elements of differentiated instruction, as well as beliefs that guide the DI model and the five nonnegotiables of differentiated instruction: high-quality curriculum, welcoming classroom environment, ongoing assessment, flexible grouping, and respectful tasks. You will also discover how differentiated classrooms differ from traditional classrooms and what concerns teachers have about practicing differentiated instruction. Finally, you will review the steps for getting started with differentiated instruction and obtaining buy-in from students, parents, and other stakeholders.
