About This Book
A teacher using differentiated instruction employs varied strategies to capitalize on the learning potential of every student. But how can teachers and administrators learn to use differentiated strategies by participating in professional development that is not differentiated for their needs? To best use differentiated strategies, they need to first see them in action.
In this action tool, differentiation expert Cindy Strickland provides staff developers, teacher leaders, and other professional development leaders with the tools they need to model differentiation as they show teachers and administrators how to successfully implement and maintain differentiated instruction initiatives. This valuable professional development resource contains more than 45 tools and activities that can be used in workshops, professional learning communities, and small-group settings with participants at all levels of skill and familiarity with differentiation.
These tools and activities, which are also available for download along with additional online-only tools, will help professional development leaders:
Staff developers and other professional development leaders can use this practical and interactive action tool to help ensure that their participants learn firsthand the value of high-quality differentiated instruction and are armed with the tools to implement these principles in ways that will help all learners succeed.
