  6. A Framework for Differentiation Part I • Who are you as learners? (Are you all alike or are there important differences?) • Given the differences we see, how should I teach you? • If our classroom is going to work for all of us, what will it be like? (How will it need to function? What roles will each of us play?) • How can I learn more about your starting points, interests, and best ways of learning?

  17. How Not to Get Sued A Legal Primer.

  18. Classroom Teachers and the Curriculum – Legal Precedent • As a general rule, courts consider classroom methodologies and techniques as the professional prerogative of teachers. Owasso ISD v Falvo (2002) • However, the education of school children is not left to the whim of individual teachers to teach what they please, whenever they please, and in any way they please. Peloza v Capistrano (1994)

  19. Classroom Teachers and the Curriculum – Legal Precedent • Classroom teachers do not have a “constitutional right to require students to forgo a portion of their education they would be entitled to.” Palmer v Board of Education(1980) • Children who do not speak English are entitled to equal access to school curriculum. Lau v Nichols, (1974)

  20. Teaching Components

  21. Curriculum An organized plan of what students should know, understand, and be able to do as a result of instruction in your class.

  22. Learning Environment The physical and emotional context in which learning occurs.

  23. Learning Environment “As teachers,our mood and energy levels set in motion ‘weather fronts’ that permeate through the day and affect our students. Our weariness settles on students like fog; our joy becomes their excitement.” -Carol Ann Tomlinson

  24. Learning Environment Mantra for Good Teacher/Parent Relationships If parents believe you dislike their child, NOTHING you do will ever be good enough. If parents believe you adore their child, minor errors on your part will be easily forgiven. This is all you really need to know.

  25. Instruction The process of teaching, educating, and engaging students with content.

  26. Assessment • A data-gathering and analysis process that determines the degree to which students have achieved curricular goals. • Assessment informs decisions about and planning for instruction.

  27. Final Thoughts • When was the last time you experienced something adjusted to your personal needs? • How did it make you feel?
