In Differentiated Instruction: Leading and Managing a Differentiated Classroom, you will examine the issues and strategies for leading a differentiated classroom and managing the many details necessary for the class to run smoothly.
You will explore how the teacher’s vision sets the stage for students’ confidence and effectiveness in a responsive classroom. You will also discover the direct link between teachers’ mindsets and their actions in the classroom, which influence how students come to see themselves as learners. In addition, you will learn to create buy-in from students, parents, and other stakeholders, which leads to effective partnerships.
You will also review several challenges that many teachers encounter when trying to implement differentiation, as well as concrete ideas for addressing those. Practical suggestions for managing the details of a classroom will include getting students into groups, giving multiple directions, calling on students, managing noise, getting help, transitions, and managing time.
