We have students in our classrooms who struggle academically and others who learn at an advanced level and accelerated pace.  We can meet the needs of all learners by differentiating instruction.  This workshop provides an understanding and application of the principles and strategies needed to set up a classroom that provides success and challenge for academically diverse students.  All students are regularly offered CHOICES.  Based on the student’s readiness levels, interests, and learning profile, we modify the content, process, product and/or learning environment.  Differentiating instruction makes teaching more interesting and effective as YOU meet the needs of your students.
