Developing teaching activities meet the specific learning needs of students across a full range of abilities. Australian Professional Standards for Teachers 1.5.2, 1.6.3 and 4.1.2 will be a main focus during this workshop.

Every teacher is totally aware that even in the most level of classes there are students who don’t fly with the flock. How you cater for these students can make a huge difference to the student’s performance, how well your class operates and how feel as a teacher. This workshop will explore how to differentiate your curriculum and explore alternate teaching activities to engage and support all students resulting in their full participation.
This extremely practically based workshop demonstrates how differentiate instruction to maintain student engagement and improve performance.

The workshop includes:

  • How to grab the whole class’s attention and engage a maximum number of students.

  • How to use cooperative practices that enable peer mentoring.

  • How to use four different mindsets to differentiate student actions and accommodate mindset agility.

  • How to use the six major variables in differentiated instruction to improve engagement and performance.

  • How to use goal setting on three different levels to scaffold growth and to give disengaged students clarity of purpose.

  • How to use SFA (Sweet Formative Assessment) tasks that enable teachers to measure student performance more accurately.

  • How to use simple planning methods that help you plan not only what you teach but how, where and when you teach it.

  • A huge range of websites and technology help that can make differentiation easier
