What Does It Take to Get It Right
Differentiated instruction was designed to address the instructional needs of diverse students. However, simply claiming to practise differentiation will not meet those needs.
In this keynote session (from the 14 October 2010 On Excellence in Teaching Summit), Carol Ann Tomlinson calls on teachers to implement best practices regarding curriculum, assessment, instruction and learning environment - and to learn how these factors interrelate. She examines and invites educators to scrutinise their practices in applying the four foundational principles of effective differentiation, which:
- begins with a growth mindset, moves to student-teacher connections and evolves to community
- is rooted in meaningful curriculum
- is guided by ongoing assessment
- addresses student readiness, interests and learning profile.
This package includes a 72-minute DVD with the video session and a CD with materials to support team or individual professional learning, an excerpt from the book On Excellence in Teaching and relevant web links.
