DEFENSIBLE DIFFERENTIATION

What Does It Take to Get It Right?

By Carol Ann Tomlinson

One-size-fits-all instruction approaches do not serve today's academically diverse student population, and simply claiming to practice differentiation is not a magic bullet. In this keynote, Dr. Tomlinson calls on teachers to implement best practices regarding curriculum, assessment, instruction, and learning environment-and to grasp how these factors interrelate. She examines and invites educators to scrutinize their practices, applying the four foundational principles of effective differentiation.

    APPLIED DIFFERENTIATION - MAKING IT WORK IN THE CLASSROOM (ELEMENTARY)

    Featuring Gayle Gregory, Cindy Strickland, and other experts

    How successful are your teachers in implementing differentiation practices in their classrooms? You will be excited to learn that School Improvement Network and The Video Journal of Education just released the most comprehensive tool available to help teachers understand and use differentiation with their students.

    Applied Differentiation: Making It Work in the Classroom features Gayle Gregory, Cindy Strickland, Lin Kuzmich, and exemplary teachers and administrators.

    These powerful programs can provide hours of group training for teachers and administrators on a school or district level as well as job-embedded professional learning. Teachers can see how successful teachers design lesson plans and deliver them in their differentiated classrooms---and specific templates and frameworks are included that will help teachers identify learning styles and differentiate lessons using the newly released Applied Differentiation Map..

    Program 1: Knowing the Learner
  • Understand the What and Why of Differentiation
  • Differentiation creates motivation in all learners, especially those who have not been excited about school.
  • Educators intentionally use data to recognize student needs and interests that provide links to successful learning.
  • Identify Student Readiness
  • Connect to students with where they are. The constant pull to greater knowledge or skills will engage students not otherwise ready for the learning.
  • Crystallize Student Interest
  • As teachers tie what students like into topics, interest will increase and learning will result.
  • Create a Learning Profile for Each Student
  • Use the Learning Profile Matrix to help understand how students learn best through their learning styles, intelligence inclinations, culture, race, and gender.

    Program 2: How to Differentiate
  • Educators Understand Themselves as Learners
  • Begin small by starting with familiar topics.
  • Apply learning styles, techniques, and strategies teachers know.
  • Manage Differentiation
  • Sustain a positive safe climate.
  • Establish and practice routines.
  • Provide anchor activities to engage students without direction.
  • Plan with the Applied Differentiation Map, a dynamic tool for lesson planning
  • The map will help teachers understand: WHERE to begin. WHAT is differentiated and WHAT are student needs. HOW students will learn and HOW learning is to be demonstrated.
    Program 3: Leadership and Implementation
  • This program is designed to help educational leaders start the process of differentiation within their schools.
  • Create a Climate for Differentiation
  • Teachers, like students, have differing needs and styles.
  • Provide Training and Leadership
  • The principal must take responsibility to initiate improved instruction. Allow teachers to observe other teachers, to coach or be coached, and to participate in learning communities.
  • Offer Ongoing Support
  • Help teachers feel empowered, accountable and professional.
  • Examine Structures That Work
  • Training and sustaining structures need not be rigid, but must be sensible and consistent.
