Differentiated Instruction: Myth-Busting, Principles, and Practicalities

Differentiated instruction is a nice idea, but do we really believe what is fair isn't always equal, and is it okay to do different things with different students?  Being sensitive to students' readiness levels and learning differences while holding them accountable for the same standards can be a challenge. What works?  Join us for a provocative and entertaining address from an international presenter that examines differentiating instruction for diverse learners while maintaining a semblance of teacher sanity in today’s classroom realities.  Topics include: differentiated lesson design, tiering, scaffolding, personal learning, responding to advanced students, practical cognitive science principles, descriptive feedback, correcting misconceptions of differentiation, and more.  Candid yet validating, the presentation busts differentiated instruction myths and gets to our core beliefs as educators. Don't miss this chance to finally understand differentiated instruction!
