1. Remembering
2. Understanding
3. Applying
4. Analyzing
5. Evaluating Previous Knowledge Review Introduction The purpose of the presentation is to provide a professional development session on cultural competency to educational staff.

The session will be on differentiated instruction specifically through practical application. Differentiated Instruction is the use of different learning strategies to meet the learning needs of all learners. Examples of Differentiated Instruction Learning Strategies
Adjusting Questions
Tiered Assignments
Compacting Curriculum
Peer Teaching
Learning Styles Focus and Goal The focus of the session is to provide some insights on how to look at differentiated instruction as an ongoing process.

The goal is to provide an opportunity for staff members to become more familiar with differentiated instruction through practical applications 9:00-9:15 Introduce Training/Review
Discussion on Bloom's and correlation to
differentiated instruction (Video 1)
9:15-9:35 Introduction of Activity
Participants get with partners
Each pair draws strategy from choices
Each pair chooses one lesson plan
Participants apply chosen strategy to lesson

9:35-9:50 Share Lesson Plans

9:50-10:00 Next Steps and Evaluation Learning Module

The workshop participants will divide up in pairs determined by drawing numbers (1&2, 3&4, etc).
Each pair will pick a type of learning strategy and create a learning strategy for the lesson using the picked strategy.
Each pair will demonstrate their lesson. Exploring strategies to understand:
What differentiation is and how it looks in a classroom?
Why differentiation is important to student success?
What is fair for all students and how to address fairness issues? Fairness vs Equal
What the teacher can adjust based on student differences? Bloom's Taxonomy and Differentiated Instruction

Bloom's Taxonomy is guide in creating lesson plans that will reach all learners.
Understanding that there are diverse learners will provide a goal to the creation of effective lesson plans that will reach all learners.
Knowing what the outcome of the learning is will help determine which strategy will be the most effective for specific students. Four Main ways to Differentiate Instruction

1. Differentiating the Content/Topic
2. Differentiating the Process
3. Differentiating the Product
4. Differentiating the Environment Activity Preparation Participants will bring a lesson plan to the training.
Trainer will bring cards numbered from 1-10.
Trainer will bring 3 sample lesson plans
Trainer will bring cards with different learning strategies
One strategy per card. The participants will complete a Self Assessment/Peer Assessment on the activity.
The Assessment will be a Rubric rating the extent of the learning. Activity Assessment Training Assessment
The participant will complete a Rubric Assessment evaluating the quality of training Prior Knowledge

The previous workshop defined cultural competency and how cultural competency should look in the school.
The participants identified their level of competency and how they could improve.
This workshop is a continuation of the journey to cultural competency. Participants will apply principles from Bloom's Taxonomy and differentiated instruction by adding appropriate learning activities to lesson plans to reach diverse learners.
