Foundational Structure for Differentiated Instruction

Schools looking for a systemic implementation of Differentiation should consider having this two-day workshop. Each session can be spaced apart or done on consecutive days. Combined with on site coaching days and virtual PLC coaching meetings can lead to a powerful impact.

Day 1: Foundational Structure for DI, Part 1
Teachers learn about the first 3 Elements of Differentiated Instruction: Content, Process, and Product. They will explore strategies, and develop strategic lessons based on the first 3 Elements.

Day 2: Foundational Structure for DI, Part 2
Learn about the final 3 Elements of Differentiated Instruction: Readiness, Interests, and Learning Preferences. They will explore how student voice & choice impacts instruction through these elements, and develop strategic lessons with these lenses in mind.

Getting Started With Differentiated Instruction

Schools interested in an overview session to get teachers thinking about Differentiated Instruction should consider this one-day workshop. It is a good launch point for immediate impact and consideration for the systemic approach to Differentiated Instruction. In this overview workshop, teachers gain an overview of the 6 Elements of Differentiation. They explore strategies that can be put to immediate use.

Practical and Impactful Differentiation So All Can Learn | Online

Explore a structure for whole staff implementation of differentiation that meets the needs of all learners. Included is understanding common language and aligned strategies that support teachers’ intentional planning and implementation for meeting diverse needs. This virtual workshop is interactive as teachers engage in practical experiences and application of the learning concepts. John McCarthy is an experienced virtual learning instructor who wrote the highly popular article:  4 Key Aspects of Teaching an Online Class and is the author of So All Can Learn: A practical guide to differentiation.

Effective Differentiated Instruction Through Formative Assessment

Teachers explore frameworks for understanding the whole student so as to more effectively differentiate based on the 6 elements of DI. Differentiated Instruction is effective only through good use of formative assessment.

Building a Culture of Student Voice

Teachers explore how to plan and implement differentiation through frameworks and strategies that foster student voice. Empowered students will do more when their voice truly matters by teacher actions.
