Overview

Overview

Teachers are keenly aware of their students’ learning differences and understand the challenge of addressing those differences in ways that benefit both individual learners and the class. Differentiated instruction is a way of thinking about the classroom that involves attending to individual and small-group needs while moving the whole class ahead in knowledge, understanding, and skill.

This two-day institute helps teachers to examine the basic principles of differentiation in light of educational neuroscience research and helps them make the most effective curricular, instructional, and assessment choices. Participants will examine how each of those key elements can be shaped for maximum student growth and how they work together to enhance learning.

Learn how to implement differentiation so that it achieves the desired result of shared responsibility between teacher and student.

Learning Outcomes

Differentiation and the Brain

This research offers information and insights that can help educators decide whether certain curricular, instructional and assessment choices are likely to be more effective than others. The authors also offer suggestions on how to establish and manage differentiated classrooms without imposing additional heavy burdens on teachers – teach differently and smarter, not harder.

The second edition includes updated references and findings from new educational neuroscience research that support the elements of differentiated instruction. It includes updated instructional strategies and teacher-tested examples related to implementing differentiated instruction components, as well as offering new guidance on working with issues related to learning profiles.
