Description

Differentiation: Attending to Needs

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 provide a tool-kit of approaches and strategies for building differentiated learning environments.

Participants will:

  • define what differentiation is

  • examine personal educational beliefs about differentiation

  • examine the significance of a student learning profile and implications for informing differentiation

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

  • examine the role of motivation in a differentiated learning environment

  • 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

  • reflect on the role of the teacher, student and environment in a differentiated classroom

Audience:

This workshop is for teachers that teach from Prep to Grade 10.

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