Differentiation means creating multiple paths so that students of different readiness levels , interests, or learning profiles experience equally appropriate ways to absorb, use, develop, and present concepts as part of the daily learning process. Specific strategies for differentiation include:
Personal Agendas are personalized lists of tasks that a student must complete in a specified time, usually two to three weeks.
A Compacted Curriculum encourages teachers to assess students before beginning a unit of study or development of a skill. Students who do well on the pre-assessment do not continue work on what they already know.
Flexible Grouping allows students to be appropriately challenged and avoids labeling a student's readiness as static.
Strategies for Differentiating
Interest-Based Investigations provide opportunities for students to explore topics of personal interest while supporting their research skills.
A Learning Contract is a written agreement between a teacher and a student that will result in students working independently. The contract helps students to set daily and weekly work goals and develop management skills.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
