This workshop is designed for teachers who are familiar with the concept of differentiation, but want some practice with application. You will leave with a strong understanding of using formative and other student data to group your classes, as well as several artifacts you can put to use immediately.
We will cover using formative assessment to differentiate, and actual differentiation through product, process, content, homework, and assessment. We will discuss accommodating learning style preferences as well as supporting varying levels of academic need.
Please bring learning goals or a unit with which you’d like to work, including your summative assessment / quizzes you give along the way, etc.
Presented as part of CITL's 2022 Winter Institute: A Virtual Event for Teachers on February 18, 2022.
