Based on the best-selling Strategies for Differentiating Instruction: Best Practices for the Classroom (third edition), this workshop offers practical strategies that allow all students to learn at appropriately challenging levels and make continuous progress by focusing on their various levels of knowledge and readiness to learn.
Conducted in a teacher-friendly manner, the professional development presents strategies that can be used in any classroom to ensure that each student’s needs are addressed. Designed specifically for teachers who are new to differentiated instruction, the workshop offers sound, practical advice for establishing a culture conducive to effective differentiation, preassessing students, implementing differentiation strategies, and managing and assessing student learning.
The day is filled with the essentials all classroom teachers need to know in order to differentiate instruction and address all students’ interests and levels of readiness.
