Differentiated Instruction

Differentiation

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 is an approach to teaching that encourages planning for and attention to student differences in classrooms. Differentiated instruction shows teachers how to create effective, brain-friendly classrooms for all learners.

HBE’s professional development services are designed to help educators translate the research of Dr Carol Ann Tomlinson into practice and implement strategies that cater to the different ways that students learn.
