How might instruction be differentiated based on assessment data and the needs of students?

Page 6: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Learning Goal

Our goals: •  to gain a shared understanding of differentiated instruction; and •  to know how to differentiate the content process, environment and product according to assessment data

Page 7: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Success Criteria

After this session you will know that you are successful if you: •  can define differentiated instruction using your own words; •  identify strategies that you might implement based upon student readiness, interest, and learning styles (provide specific examples)

One Student’s Perspective

What are some of Calvin’s impressions of life at school as represented in the following comic?

Page 9: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,
Page 10: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Discussion

•  Introduce yourself to your tablemates •  Share some of your thoughts regarding:

–  Calvin’s impressions –  the analogies within the comic –  the author/artist’s intended message(s)

•  Do you agree/disagree with some/all of the meaning that you inferred about life at school?

•  How might this comic support the necessity for differentiated instruction?

Page 11: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Common Goal in Board

Common Understanding

1. To gain a shared understanding of differentiated instruction

Instructional Strategies: a)  Concept attainment, graphic organizer

or self-assessment b) Windows and Mirrors – visualizing and

listening to DI in practice c)  Video clip- Debunking Myths d)  Reading- Numbered Heads e)  Direct Instruction- Big Ideas

Page 13: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Key Components of DI

Choices: Work alone or in pairs –  If you prefer to make meaning through comparing and contrasting different ideas you may want to do concept attainment –  If you prefer to make meaning by reading descriptions and crafting specific examples you may want to use graphic organizer –  If you prefer to make meaning by examining your present practice you may want to complete self-assessment guide

Windows and Mirrors If you looked through a window where differentiation was not occurring in these areas what might you see and hear:

a.  planning- before and after I know learners b.  organization- physical space, resources,

student groupings c.  instruction - how the learning is structured

including instructional approaches (ie. scaffolding, inquiry-based) and strategies

d.  assessment – for, of and as learning, feedback

Page 15: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Windows and Mirrors

Now look in the mirror, imagine that you are differentiating instruction. What might you see and hear now?

a.  planning- before and after I know learners b.  organization- physical space, resources,

student groupings c.  instruction - how the learning is structured

including instructional approaches (ie. scaffolding, inquiry-based) and strategies

d.  assessment – for, of and as learning, feedback

Professional Resource

Page 19: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Key Idea

• Differentiation is responsive teaching rather than one size fits all teaching.

Page 20: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Key Idea

Page 21: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Key Idea

• Using varied instructional strategies for responding to readiness, interest, and learning profiles

Page 22: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Key Idea •  Flexible grouping that

varies depending on readiness, interests and learning profile.

• Who really needs this lesson? When and how will I deliver it?

Page 23: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Key Idea

• On-going assessment and adjustment is essential

• We are responding to assessment data!

Page 24: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Key Idea

•  Just as you have to know where you are going (design down planning), know what you are assessing (clear targets and criteria), you also must know your learners and how they learn

Page 25: Differentiated Instruction - Yolareadtogrow.yolasite.com/resources/Differentiated... · 2011-06-16 · differentiated instruction Instructional Strategies: a) Concept attainment,

Ongoing assessment
