18 teachers at my new school took part in an on-line professional development class. They said it was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about differentiation, and to learn more about each other. They are working to arrange for another on-line course for the second semester, which I am eager to be a part of.
For those of us who did not get to take the class - below are the links to the key resources we used. There are some fantastic articles, learning styles inventories, and resources as we all work to improve our practice of differentiating our instruction for our students!
Most of the on-line class has been geared toward restructuring especially process and product to meet the needs of students based on learning profiles. This is a great compliment to our current efforts here at my school to differentiate our content based on readiness by providing scaffolded instruction to students who need it, and enriched instruction for the students who already get it.
If you have any questions about any of the resources, please see let me know. Happy differentiation!
