Korsak Online Presentation

  1. 1. By: Valerie Korsak
  2. 2. What is Differentiated Instruction? <ul><li>Teaching in a way that meets the needs of each individual learner. </li></ul><ul><li>Reaching out to an individual or groups of students. </li></ul><ul><li>Adjusting the way you present the curriculum in order to reach a diverse group of learners. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Ways to Differentiate Instruction <ul><li>Teachers can differentiate instruction through flexible grouping. Flexible grouping is often used when determining groups for learning centers. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers can also have different leveled reading groups known as guided reading groups. Guided reading helps to meet students individual reading needs. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Learning Centers <ul><li>Learning centers can be comprised of any subject material that is taught in class. </li></ul><ul><li>They can be used as remedial activities or enrichment activities depending on the individual needs of the group. </li></ul><ul><li>While students are working in their learning center the teacher monitors the class and provides mini lessons where appropriate. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Kindergarten Learning Centers <ul><li>Writing Center </li></ul><ul><li>Students are given a prompt and students write a complete sentence. </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Center </li></ul><ul><li>Students work websites like Starfall.com and PBSKids.org. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Kindergarten Learning Centers <ul><li>Listening Center </li></ul><ul><li>Students listen to the story of the week on the CD player. </li></ul><ul><li>Word Work Center </li></ul><ul><li>Students participate in rhyming games, syllable games, and various letter recognition games. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Kindergarten Learning Centers <ul><li>Math Center </li></ul><ul><li>Students practice sorting, patterning and counting. </li></ul><ul><li>Sight Words Center </li></ul><ul><li>Students spell out sight words using magnetic letters. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Guided Reading <ul><li>Students are grouped according to reading ability. </li></ul><ul><li>The teacher works with the group on reading strategies, letter identification, sounds, and high frequency words. </li></ul><ul><li>Students read leveled books that are appropriate for their reading level. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Guided Reading <ul><li>Students in my classroom are broken into six reading groups. Each group consists of about 3-4 students. I conduct guided reading with each group once a week for 20 minutes. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Overview <ul><li>Each year we are faced with a classroom of students who have various different academic needs. </li></ul><ul><li>As teachers we are required to meet their needs and teach them the curriculum. </li></ul><ul><li>Since all students learn differently and have different academic abilities we must differentiate instruction to best reach each student. </li></ul>
