Secondary Classroom Teachers, Leaders
Differentiation is a teaching approach that aims to cater to the diverse needs of students in the classroom. To effectively implement differentiation in the classroom, teachers and leaders need to have a deep understanding of their students' abilities and needs, as well as a range of instructional strategies to meet these needs.
In this workshop, teachers and leaders will learn how to differentiate instruction to reach every student in their classroom. The day will cover key topics such as identifying and understanding student differences, developing and adapting curriculum and instruction, and assessing student learning. Participants will also explore a variety of instructional strategies, such as flexible grouping, tiered assignments, and student choice, that can be used to differentiate instruction effectively.
We’ll support you in developing your own Differentiation Toolkit that is grounded in research and tailored to your school’s context, and you’ll leave with a rock-solid understanding of how to implement differentiation in your classroom and practical strategies to support student learning and success.
