  4. 4.   Differentiation is a philosophy, not a “Bag of Tricks.” Differentiation is classroom practice that looks eyeball to eyeball with the reality that kids differ, and the most effective teachers do whatever it takes to hook the whole range of kids on learning. -- Tomlinson (2001) Getting started on differentiation:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLEFAFE68E0619F EC6&v=LGYa6ZacUTM (Carol Ann Tomlinson 5 min.)

  7. 7. Why Do We Need Differentiated Instruction? Our nation’s schools today are educating the largest, most diverse student population ever, to higher standards than ever before. The most effective way to help students meet standards is by differentiating your instruction.
  8. 8. How Do I Differentiate?
  9. 9. Flexible use of student groups is the heart of differentiated instruction.
  10. 10. Discuss how you use the three kinds of groups for differentiation. (see handout)
  11. 11. Student Need: Modification to Student Need: Students in a 6th grade class vary in spelling from a 2nd grade level to a high school level. Teacher uses procedure where all students are engaged in spelling at the same time but with different lists with varied levels of complexity (Modification of content based on student readiness) Students finish their work at different times. Teacher establishes areas of the room where students may work if they have time. There are a variety of tasks available at each area based on what the student needs to work on and what they want to work on. (Modification of learning environment and process based on student readiness and interest.) Students have great difficulty with writing. Teacher provides or posts lists of key words for each student. Teacher also supports students with webbing, discussing, and taping their ideas before writing. Students always have a place to go for help. ( Modification of process and learning environment based on student readiness.)
  12. 12. When learning goals are phrased as questions, they encourage inquiry rather than simply the production of facts and memorized responses.
