Guided or Independent Practice
What is Differentiation??
What the students learn
How the students learn
How the student demonstrates what was learned
Access Prior Knowledge
Students "buy into" the lesson (HUGE!)
Students want to achieve, learn, and explore
Students want to be motivated
Lafayette School Corporation
Groups and Choice
Strengths (Multiple Intelligence)
Readiness Levels (Lesson Pre-Tests)
"Ensuring that what a student learns,
how he or she learns it,
and how the student demonstrates
what he or she has learned
is a match for that student's
readiness level, interests,
and preferred mode of learning"
Components of an Effective Lesson
The teacher role
Dispenser of Knowledge
Facilitator of Learning

We are now facilitators of learning!
Understand differentiated learning
Use technology to pre-assess students and create learning profiles
Leave with sample lessons, websites, and tools
Utilize technology to give students choice
Identify the shifting role of educators
"The most exciting breakthroughs of the 21st century
will not occur because of technology, but because of an
expanding concept of what it means to be human" --John Naisbitt

Survey Monkey to get student input:
Be aware of your own readiness level, and move at your own pace. If this seems overwhelming that is perfectly okay. If you're more advanced, find the websites links or go to the "Websites to Take Home" document and play around while we are talking.
Technology in the Process
QuickStar (Can make your own quizzes
Groups by mixed ability:
PEMDAS Masters - team leaders
3 per group (student choice)
Create a 10 question quiz in a word document for challenge
Team scores will determine winner, but tests are taken individually (Students should work together to learn concept)
Submit via MyBigCampus
Post "Math Smack Talk" on the classroom chat
Using Smart Board go through sample problems as a group
Allow students opportunities to do the writing
Allow and help each other
Differentiation does not allow for complete individualization of learning.
Differentiation does allow for remediation, acceleration, expansion, and extension of concepts.
Student work is compiled into a PDF and distributed
Team average % (not personal) are posted on MyBigCampus
Can incorporate incentives if desired
Check out Padlet.com at home (used to be WallWisher)

1. Instruction through music
2. Instruction using real world application
3. Sample question demo
There are lots of benefits to teaching in groups, and lots of ways to group.
