What is Differentiation?

Differentiation is…

* Having high expectations for all students

* Adjustment of the core content

* Assigning activities geared to different learning styles, interests, and levels of thinking

* Providing students with choices about what and how they learn

* Flexible because teachers move students in and out of groups based upon students' instructional needs

* Acknowledgment of individual needs

* Articulated, high level goals reflecting continuous progress

* Assessment to determine student growth and new needs

* Adjustment of curriculum by complexity, breadth, and rate

* Educational experiences which extend, replace, or supplement standard curriculum


Differentiation is not…

* Individual learning plans for each student

* More problems, questions, or assignments

* Get it on your own

* Recreational reading

* Independent reading without curriculum connections

* Free time to draw or practice your talent

* Cooperative learning groups where the gifted kid gets to be the leader

* Activities that all students will be able to do

* Interest centers unless linked to core content and at a complex level
