Staff Meeting Tuesday 12/9

Differentiated Instruction

Objective:

  • Define Differentiated Instruction and discuss strategies for implementation

Preparation for 12/9

Each staff member should read this link. School Groups have been assigned an additional link to read/watch. Know that you are not limited to the link your group is assigned and feel free to take a look at what other groups are reviewing. There are some interesting links out there. Also, please note that due to formatting some web links may need to be printed out to be read and disregard comments sections as they are rarely written in by the author themselves and are not edited for reliability. The School Group lists are at the bottom of this document in case anyone can't remember which group they're in. Please review the links and prepare to discuss these questions in your groups.

  • What is Differentiated Instruction?
  • How do I Differentiate my instruction?
  • How does DI give students what they need?
