Differentiating For Learning

Workshops from the Virtual Classroom wiki

The Differentiator

is based on “A Taxonomy of Learning, Teaching, and Assessing: A Revision of Bloom’s Taxonomy of Educational Objectives”. The Differentiator helps to guide you as you create learning activities and lessons for the various learning needs in your classroom. First choose a thinking skill from one of six categories (remember, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, or creating). Next, pick a way to to differentiate the content. Then, you will choose a resource that students will use. Select a product for students to create it can be visual, constructed, oral, multimedia, or written. Finally choose the group size. As you choose items for each category a learning objective sentence will be created.

CAST: Differentiated Instruction

Not all students are alike. Based on this knowledge, differentiated instruction applies an approach to teaching and learning so that students have multiple options for taking in information and making sense of ideas. The model of differentiated instruction requires teachers to be flexible in their approach to teaching and adjusting the curriculum and presentation of information to learners rather than expecting students to modify themselves for the curriculum.
