Practical Differentiation Strategies for Busy Teachers

Supporting students who are struggling and extending those who are already experiencing success can be challenging in the hectic environment of the everyday classroom. This course explores fast and effective ways you can differentiate your curriculum so that you can meet  every student at their personal point of need – without being overwhelmed by workload demands of offering this support. In this workshop you will:

  • Discover how recent research about the science of learning and the brain can make differentiation easier.
  • Investigate practical techniques for employing the four basic types of differentiation to support struggling students and extend gifted kids.
  • Learn how to tailor your teaching to reduce off-task student behaviour and emotional outbursts and concentrate your efforts on teaching and learning
  • Explore an inclusive whole class approach that minimises the number of individual differentiations you have to employ – and maximises the impact of those one-on-one interventions for the students who need the most support
