Leading and Managing a Differentiated Classroom
Recorded January 4, 2011
The prospect of "managing" a classroom of young learners is daunting to most teachers at the outset of their careers. Over time, most teachers become at least somewhat more comfortable with "managing" students.
Nonetheless, classroom management remains a key impediment to using differentiated instruction for many, if not most, teachers both veteran and novice.
This webinar explored three critical questions that may inhibit teacher confidence in establishing classrooms that are flexible enough to attend to the range of learning needs of students in those classrooms.
Watch this webinar as a way of reflecting on your own classroom or classrooms in your school or district, and to strengthen your understanding of what it means to be both leader and a manager in a setting designed to address the learning needs of all students in the classroom.
