How to Effectively Differentiate Learning in ENGLISH
Presented by: Anna Bennett
Event Information: 6 PD Hours
There's a lot of talk about differentiated instruction, but what is it really? And how does it apply to the middle and secondary English teacher?
Differentiated instruction is a recognition that students vary in their needs, interests, abilities, and prior knowledge. It's a springboard from which students work toward the same ends, but they use different content, processes, and products to get there. It's all about successfully teaching each student. And it can be done in the regular English classroom.
This workshop will investigate the following;
- What differentiation actually means
- specific English lesson examples
- example English units of work
- alternative assignment ideas
