What's in the eBook
Whether you are new to teaching, new to differentiated instruction, or a seasoned pro, this guide will help.
Differentiated instruction is ensuring that every student is given the tools, information, skills, and guidance needed to meet their goals. This guide will help you gain an understanding of what this looks like in an actual classroom while also troubleshooting some issues that could come up along the way. You'll learn about:
- Grouping students for differentiated learning. Students learn and retain more information when they are learning from each other, and groups can provide an excellent avenue for this to occur.
- Issues and concerns with differentiated groups. Make student grouping feel natural, serve the needs of every level of student, and use grouping as an opportunity to organize data that keeps you and everyone else on track.
- How to assess students. Assessment is the key to finding out where your students are and where they need to go.
- Misconceptions of differentiated instruction. Does differentiated instruction mean every kid is doing something different, does it take more time, and is it over-accommodating the student? We'll address a few frequently asked questions and misconceptions.
- Ideas for classroom instruction and assessment. Check out some great tools to help make differentiated instruction that much easier and more effective.
