Differentiation is sometimes presented as a set of instructional strategies or the need to create multiple versions of lessons every day. While all of us need a range of strategies to enliven and focus instruction, there is no particular set of strategies required to address the diversity of student needs that characterize most contemporary classrooms. In fact, the classroom “element” that is most effective in learner success is the teacher. Come take a look at the powerful role a teacher plays as the architect of success in academically and culturally diverse classrooms. Think along with the group about what you already do that makes school a positive force in the lives of each of your students. And consider what your next steps might be in contributing to your own growth as a teacher, and what that growth can serves as a catalyst for growth in your students as well.
