DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION

  • The three elements of differentiated instruction are content, process, and procedure.
  • The heart of this type of instruction is giving “choice”, linked to many successes within the classroom, to students allowing for assessment of learning.
  • Students are able to select their preference for learning by given varied assignment choice to demonstrate proficiency.
  • It is not always convenient to offer multiple assignment choices, but this intentional opportunity to give selection of multisensory and creative options, as much as possible, creates a love of learning within the classroom.
  • Collaborative learning opportunities provide varied ideas for problem solving.
  • Socratic instruction allowing students to discover answers to posed questions.
