Who Should Attend

Session Description

The differentiation of curriculum and instruction is essential to meeting the diverse learning needs of students in the classroom. Differentiation entails understanding how to adapt the content, process, and product of the curriculum so that all students achieve mastery of essential learning.

This course will focus on planning, implementing, and assessing a differentiated curriculum. Topics to be discussed will include:

  • Analyzing data/assessments to determine student strengths and learning gaps;
  • Using the cycle of inquiry to analyze, plan, act, and reflect on student data and mastery of essential standards;
  • Examining various alternatives to differentiate the presentation of subject matter (content);
  • Analyzing multiple methods to differentiate the manner in which students acquire information (process);
  • Investigating multiple options for students to show what they know (product);
  • Comparing and contrasting Differentiated Curriculum with Universal Design for Learning Principles;
  • Exploring sample planning protocols; and
  • Planning a differentiated classroom lesson.

Training Goals

To provide school staff with the tools to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all learners.
