  9. Anchor Activity Debrief In Table Groups • Discuss: - how this task was differentiated - the learning outcomes for each of the choices - how the activity was differentiated - the option you selected and your reasons • Listen to a few $1.00 summaries • To learn more about your group, complete the Table Profile SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  10. Create a Table Profile Use the DI Scrapbook to determine: Your environmental learning preferences (p.11) Your preferred Triarchic Intelligence (p.10 or p. 16) Where you are in your use of DI on the DI continuum (p.25) Note your information on the Table Profile (Handout 2) SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program Differentiated Instruction Professional Learning Strategy, 2010 10

  11. Class and Student Profiles In pairs • Partner A reads Class Profiles (Educator’s Guide pp.18-19) • Partner B reads Student Profiles (Educator’s Guide p. 20) • Brief each other on what they have read As a table group Discuss What other types of information could be noted on a ‘class’ profile? SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  13. CornersDifferentiated • Go to the corner that best describes you and form groups of three • Share with the participants in your corner: - grades and subjects you teach - prior experience with DI - an example of how your learner preferences affected your learning/teaching SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  14. I Wonder What are you wondering about differentiated instruction or the DI Summer Program? • Write each “I wonder” on a separate sticky note • Share your “I wonders” at the table (e.g., I wonder if DI means individualized programming.) • Post the “I wonders” from your group on the wall in the indicated area. SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  15. Personal Learning Goal • Refer back to the DI Implementation Continuum • Review and reflect on where you are in your implementation of DI • Set one specific goal for yourself to meet before the December break SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  16. Student Success/Learning to 18 Differentiated Instruction Professional Learning Strategy - a province-wide strategy to build the capacity of educators in Grades 7-12 to find out about their learners and respond to their diverse needs by differentiating instruction SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  17. Context: Core Priorities High Levels of Student Achievement Reducing the Gaps in Student Achievement Increased Public Confidence in Our Publicly Funded Schools SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  18. DI Professional Learning Strategy Ben Levin (2008). How to Change 5000 Schools, Harvard Education Press: Cambridge, Mass. SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program The heart of school improvement rests in improving daily teaching and learning practices in schools, including engaging students and their families.

  19. Goals of the DI Professional Learning Strategy • To increase the instructional knowledge and skills of educators of grades 7-12 so that they can meet the diverse needs of all students; • To build awareness of Differentiated Instruction as a framework for planning and implementing effective instruction, assessment and evaluation practices as outlined in the Ontario curriculum; • To facilitate and support job-embedded professional learning opportunities through collaborative inquiry. SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  20. A New Definition of Professional Learning Good teaching occurs when educators on teams are involved in a cycle in which they analyze data, determine student and adult learning goals based on that analysis, design joint lessons that use evidence-based strategies, have access to coaches for support in improving their classroom instruction, and then assess how their learning and teamwork affects student achievement. From: A New Definition, JSD, Fall 2009 SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program

  21. Key Messages DOING KNOWING • Deepen and widen implementation with a focus on classrooms – in all subject areas by all teachers • Assessment drives differentiated instruction; professional learning about differentiated instruction and assessment should happen at the same time. • Integrating literacy, mathematics, assessment and evaluation and differentiated instruction will ensure alignment of and support for your work in improving student achievement • Ministry directions, initiatives and policies are aligned and integrated (e.g., DI, Growing Success, Learning for All) SS/L-18ITEB 2010 Differentiated Instruction Summer Program 21
