Raising Aspirations, Raising Achievement, Enriching Partnerships

  • Differentiation can be referred to as an educational philosophy that requires teachers to tailor their learning, teaching and assessment whilst adjusting the curriculum to the needs of children with SEN [including MAGT students] rather than expecting pupils to fit the existing curriculum.
  • (Cole 2008; Rogers, 2007)

What about OFSTED?

Raising Aspirations, Raising Achievement, Enriching Partnerships

  • OFSTED states that:
  • Differentiation is the matching of work to the differing capabilities of individuals or groups of learners in order to extend their learning.

Who do we differentiate for?

Raising Aspirations, Raising Achievement, Enriching Partnerships

  • All learners are different and are capable of some achievement
  • Every class is a mixed-ability group
  • Knowing individual pupils well is essential to good differentiation
  • Children with SEN or MAGT, like their peers, are all on a ‘continuum of learning'.  This fact makes formative assessment even more important as we cannot assume pupils will always be operating at the same level.

The benchmark for levels is wide and the process is open. Students know what to do in order to achieve the level they want to achieve.

Depth of study clearly progressive (Explain > Identify > Discuss)

what does process mean
What does process mean?

  • thinking complexity
  • learning pace
  • learning style
process for a g t
Process for A,G&T

Raising Aspirations, Raising Achievement, Enriching Partnerships

  • Process for A, G&T students should involve and encourage:
  • • higher- level thinking (e.g. analysis, synthesis and evaluation) or open-ended thinking skills (e.g. paradox, analogy, intuitive expression, tolerance for ambiguity…)
  • • discovery
  • • proof and reasoning
  • • freedom of choice
  • • group interactions

Content: The Solar System

Challenge 1: Remember the names and order of the planets.

Challenge 2: Exploring atmospheres

Content: The Solar System

Challenge 1: apply the criteria of what makes a planet a planet to another celestial body in order to determine the difference between the two.

Challenge 2: consider what would happen to the solar system if an asteroid hit the earth or evaluating whether that “tenth planet” is really a planet and why

what does product mean
What does product mean?

Raising Aspirations, Raising Achievement, Enriching Partnerships

  • appropriate feedback and targets
