How can l differentiate when l teach so many students?
‘The idea of differentiating instruction to accommodate the different ways that students learn involves a hefty dose of common sense, as well as sturdy support in the theory and research of education (Tomlinson & Allan, 2000). It is an approach to teaching that advocates active planning for student differences in classrooms’.
There is no doubt that differentiating at the secondary level can be extremely challenging. One issue is the myths around what differentiation actually means, one being that it is about providing individual tasks for each child ..this is unrealistic and far from practical! This workshop will present some simple and practical ways to think around differentiation and meeting the needs of all our students.
This practical workshop will develop an understanding that;
- Differentiation should permeate throughout our teaching practice.
- Differentiation requires effective and deliberate planning.
- Formative assessment is essential for differentiation to occur.
