Differentiated Instruction

Happy New Year! As we begin the year 2012, my teaching resolution is to share ways to differentiate instruction with others. Chris Burras and I have been preparing for the ALIVE graduate class and planning for some upcoming workshops this week. Our passion is to make sure students are actively involved in the learning process and that they are actually growing as learners. This begins with the teacher and how well he or she structures the lessons, keeping in mind that all students are not Word Smart or Math Smart . That is why we stress the importance of incorporating¬† Howard Garner’s Multiple Intelligences into plans.

Today, we will focus on writing Menus or Choice Boards for students.  Here is a PowerPoint that Chris created, simply click on the words and the presentation will open:
