Here are 5-Ways to Differentiate Instruction/Curriculum. If you hover over the underlined words, you will see documents attached that explain the process of each differentiation type. Happy learning!
- Learning Centers/Stations – Organize learning based on different learning centers/stations (video, reading, acting, listening). Stations not only allow students to move around the classroom, channeling their energy into a productive purpose, but stations also encourage collaboration among students.
- Group Students by Shared Interests or Topics – Question Formulation Technique or Fishbowl Discussions.
- Provide Tic-Tac-Toe Learning Opportunities
- Project-Based Learning (PBL) – PBL (ideas for a Health class) uses an open-ended approach in which students work on a variety of skills such as problem-solving and decision-making skills. Students are able to work alone or collectively to produce an engaging, high-end, result oriented project that answers class questions or solves a problem they wish to resolve.
- Task cards – Students will be able to participate and complete activities that they feel comfortable doing. Answering task cards can be a small-group activity, adding variety to classes that normally focus on solo or large-group learning. Set up stations around your classroom and pair students together. You can individualize instruction by monitoring the pairs and addressing gaps when needed.
