Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners

Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners

09-11-2017 To 10-08-2017

Course Overview:

Diversity in America’s public schools is a fact, so it’s not a question of whether to differentiate instruction, but how. This course will introduce you to the key concepts of differentiating content, process, and product based on student readiness, interest, and learning profile. You will also learn strategies for implementing each of these differentiated instruction concepts. You will participate in discussions about participants how to manage a differentiated classroom, focusing in particular on the importance of using assessment to guide individual instruction. The culminating activity will involve reflecting on the differentiated instructional strategies you plan to implement in your own classroom.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Learn strategies for differentiating content, learning process, and learning products.
  • Construct tools for determining student readiness, interest levels, and learning profiles.
  • Discuss how to manage a differentiated classroom, focusing in particular on the importance of using assessment to guide individual instruction.
  • Reflect on the differentiated instructional strategies you plan to implement in your own classroom.
