About the Workshop:

The purpose of this workshop is for participants to identify the positive elements of a lesson and “makeover” other aspects by incorporating differentiated instructional strategies into the present, apply, and review segments of the lesson. Attendees will learn by doing and leave with a “toolkit” of remodeling strategies to use in any content area that will help increase student engagement, application, and retention.
