Educators know the importance of matching the learning to the student, but not all understand how to make that happen in their classrooms or schools. Others do understand and already apply differentiated instruction, but they are ready for the next level. Presenters Julia Roberts and Tracy Inman specialize in differentiating to meet the needs of all students, including those with gifts and talents. Participants will self-assess to select the workshop best fitting their needs.
Participants new to differentiation may attend the beginning workshop. Each attendee will receive a copy of the award-winning Strategies for Differentiating Instruction: Best Practices for the Classroom (3rded.) and will explore establishing a culture conducive to differentiation, the use of assessment in differentiation, differentiation strategies, and more.
For those ready for a more advanced approach, the experienced workshop will guide them in the differentiation of products and the use of a protocol that simplifies the differentiation process and removes the learning ceiling for students. Each participant will receive a copy of Assessing Differentiated Student Products: A Protocol for Development and Evaluation (2nd ed.). Additional teaching strategies will also be shared. 
Cost to attend is $110, which includes the cost of a book. EILA Credit is available.
