Differentiated Instruction 101 - 013133
Since the one-room schoolhouse, teachers have been expected to differentiate their instruction to meet the needs of a diverse group of learners. This expectation is now formally embedded in new teacher standards, evaluation systems, and LEA strategic plans as well as professional development standards. However, do educators really understand the concept of differentiation? In this session, participants will explore the foundational concepts of creating a differentiated learning environment. We will explore the difference between Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Differentiated Instruction (DI), the research and the non-negotiables of effective differentiation, and identifying strategies proven to support a learner-centered environment. NOTE: This session is recommended for teachers who are in the beginning stages of creating differentiated learning environments.
