Shira LeVine

ED 602

Target audience: parents of high-school students

what is differentiated instruction
What is Differentiated Instruction?
  • Differentiated Instruction, or DI, is a means by which teachers can address the unique needs and talents of all students in the classroom.
  • DI recognizes that each student develops at a different pace and that learning needs to address each student’s abilities.
  • DI enables students to feel safe in their learning environment.
  • Students know they are valuable, important contributors to the classroom environment.
  • DI classroom embrace the diversity of talents, skills and knowledge, spurring each student to reach his or her goals and develop his or her abilities.
goals of di
Goals of DI
  • Everyone grows in all areas
  • Lessons are tailored to students’ needs and skills
  • Teacher objectives for students are individualized and evolutionary, changing as the year progresses and the students expand their knowledge and talents
  • Parental involvement and communication between parents and teacher
  • Each student becomes an independent learner
for advanced learners
For Advanced Learners
  • DI allows students to invest in their talents and abilities
  • Struggle is part and parcel of the learning process
    • Hard work breeds success
    • Risks are acceptable and valid
    • Mistakes and failure are excellent learning tools
  • “So, why is my child’s work harder than his/her friend’s work?”
    • Each student should stretch slightly beyond his/her comfort level
    • The work is adjusted to challenge each child at his/her level of comfort, skills, knowledge and abilities
successful students
Successful Students
  • DI does encourage moving beyond one’s comfort zone and current abilities
    • Struggle is good—it leads to greater development!
  • However, pushing students too hard is not an objective of the system and is in fact counterproductive
  • The goal of learning is true understanding and self-confidence in academic enterprises
    • Not self-doubt, undue frustration or confusion
communication
Communication
  • DI relies on teacher-parent communication and interaction
  • The more we connect with you, the more the overall picture of your child emerges
    • And the more we can tailor our teaching to meet your child’s needs
    • Together, we can help him or her find his/her wings and soar
