Differentiation can make a powerful positive difference for students—and it can amount to very little. The word "differentiation" doesn’t explain much when we use it to describe our classroom practice. What matters are things like our persistent efforts to know and understand our students well with an eye toward teaching them more effectively, how we think and feel about the young people we teach, how we convey those thoughts and feelings to our students, how we learn to shape curriculum that has meaning to students, and what aspirations we hold for our students in the classroom.
This keynote will launch the conference by offering a "big picture" look at what differentiation is—or could be—by examining the elements in effectively differentiated classrooms that make the greatest difference in helping more young people succeed more fully.
