DIFFERENTIATION TRAINING FOR DIVERSE LEADERS
Differentiation requires the realization that learners will vary in their interests, motivation, readiness, and learning profiles. After realization occurs, educators are able to properly set up classrooms where all students work towards essential and/or standard understanding and skills. Such classrooms, however, rely on different content, processes, and products to get there. Differentiation is all about options and should not be punitive by requiring more able students to do additional work that might be required by students not at proficiency standards. Differentiation requires all of us to make big strides in the way we think about the classroom and curriculum.
