There may be no greater need in today's classrooms than teachers who are comfortable with and confident in addressing a range of learner needs. Academic diversity is the hallmark of contemporary classrooms, yet many teachers still plan and teach as though one lesson, taught in one way, using the same materials, over the same time span will be successful for all students. This three-day workshop is designed to help participants develop a sound framework for thinking about and planning for differentiation and apply what they are learning in guided, differentiated, hands-on workshops. Participants will spend mornings investigating and analyzing key principles and practices of differentiation. In the afternoons, session leaders will help participants develop products that apply those principles and practices to their own classrooms or classrooms of teachers whose work they support.
Building an understanding of ways in which key elements of effective differentiation support student success
Analyzing examples of differentiation based on quality indicators
Developing differentiated plans that reflect quality indicators for their own classrooms or those of colleagues
Revising plans based on feedback from workshop colleagues and presenters
