Addressing Differences in Developmental Readiness Among Students
Each classroom is filled with students with a wide range of developmental readiness and skills they can bring to bear on the discipline. Differentiation is an approach to teaching in which teachers proactively modify curriculum, methods, resources, and assignments to address the diverse needs of individual students to maximize learning opportunities. This session will explore how such differences can be addressed in the classroom.
After attending this session, you will be able to:
- Identify the types of developmental differences you can expect to find in your classroom
- Explore and reflect upon the characteristics of effective differentiation
- Develop and discuss new strategies, assignments, and activities which can address a range of developmental differences among students in the same class
