Differentiation Training

Thoughts from Administration: Differentiation is reconstructing your learning environment to meet the needs of the learners that are seated before you. Differentiation can look different in every course. However, here are two questions that drive Differentiation at Gray: 1) Do you know your students before you start teaching? 2) What are you doing to move them forward?

Take-Aways from Dr. Kelly Page (Presentator): 1) Planning with intention in your lessons. 2) Are lessons rigorous? 3) Is your classroom enriched with language?

10-2 Method: Lecture for 10 minutes and let the students talk for 2 minutes.

3-2-1 Method: 3 Things I Know; 2 Things I Learned; 1 Thing I Need to Know.

Homework Assignment: Google an Interest Inventory activity for your students.
