Differentiated Instruction

Successfully respond to the needs of all learners

Develop an effective framework for diverse classrooms

Students are becoming more academically and culturally diverse, making it more important than ever to shift away from a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning. Differentiated instruction will help you create truly effective, brain-friendly classrooms for all learners.

Differentiated instruction is an approach to teaching that advocates active planning for and attention to student differences in classrooms. Our certified experts and authors will help you translate the research of Dr Carol Ann Tomlinson into practice and implement strategies that cater to the different ways that students learn.
