Differentiating for Success in the Classroom!
June 20, 2018 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Session #: 44504
To differentiate instruction is to say we believe all kids deserve access to the richest, most compelling learning possible. We do that by providing the scaffolding they need to seize opportunities for relevant classroom instruction. Our students depend on us to help them construct a solid academic career and college-based foundation for success in life. Differentiated instruction is a tool that equips us to help students find success, now and in the future. Differentiated instruction means creating an environment in which every student feels valued, challenged, supported, and part of a team working together for success.
