Description

Differentiation: Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners

Workshop Descriptor

“ The success of education depends on adapting teaching to individual differences among learners" - Yuezheng, in 4th century B.C. China.

As a student once stated in their feedback, 'I like this class because there's something different going on all the time. My other classes, they are like peanut butter for lunch every single day. This class, it's like my teacher really knows how to cook. It's like she runs a really good restaurant with a big menu and all.'

This workshop will explore the principles of differentiation. It will examine what differentiation is and provide strategies for implementing differentiation in the classroom. Many examples of differentiation will be explored and participants will have the opportunity to develop differentiation tasks as a part of the workshop.


Participants will:

  • define what differentiation is

  • understand that differentiation is connected to readiness, interest and learning profile

  • understand that we differenitate through content, process and product and examine how we can do this

  • examine the role of the environment in a differneitatied classroom

  • examine their beliefs and the role of 'teaching up' in a differneitatied classroom

  • explore and develop respectful tasks that promote differentiation in the classroom

  • understand the importance of flexible grouping

  • explore the connection between formative assessment and differentiation

Audience:

This workshop is for teachers that teach from Prep to Grade 8.

Please note: This workshop is for participants with limited knowledge or understanding of differentiation
