MOOC's: Creating a True Independent Studies Course
by Seth Jaeger, MPA
The Driving Question of the Differentiated Classroom: How is each student doing in relation to their readiness and potential, and what instructional intervention do I use to enable them to progress toward our learning goal?
Differentiated instruction is designed to match the levels of the students in the classroom.
Curriculum Compacting
Flexible Grouping
Learning Centers or Stations
Open-ended tasks
Product Options
Research and Independent Study
Students as Producers
Thinking and inquiry
*Tiered Instruction
Instructional Strategies for Differentiation
Content: What the student needs to learn or how the student will get access to the information
Four Elements of Differentiation
Learning Environment
Process: activities in which the student engages in order to make sense or master the content
Products: Culminating projects that ask the student to rehearse, apply, and extend what he or she has learned on the unit
Learning Environment: the way the classroom works and feels.
Whenever a teacher reaches out to an individual or a small group to vary his or her teaching in order to create the best learning experience possible, the teacher is differentiating instruction
Consider it a work-In-progress
Base it on students' needs
Learn everything you can about your students
Begin small
Gradually introduce more difficult lessons
Stay up-to-date on best practices
