Differentiated Instruction: An Introduction - ONLINE

  • ASCD Presenters


In Differentiated Instruction: An Introduction, you will build a conceptual understanding of the model of differentiated instruction (DI), including the philosophical underpinnings of this model. You will explore key characteristics and elements of differentiated instruction, as well as beliefs that guide the DI model and five non-negotiables of differentiated instruction: an environment that supports learning, high-quality curriculum, ongoing assessment to inform instruction, instruction that responds to student differences, and leadership and flexible classroom management. You will also discover how differentiated classrooms differ from traditional classrooms and what concerns teachers have about practicing differentiated instruction. Finally, you will review the steps for getting started with differentiated instruction.

By the end of this course, through video examples, in-depth readings and reflections, and practical applications, you'll be ready to start planning for differentiation in your teaching practice. More specifically, as a result of the course, you will:

  • Evaluate your current beliefs and practices in light of the DI model and philosophy.
  • Demonstrate emerging skills in evaluating the use of five nonnegotiables of DI in your own classroom and in classrooms of others.
  • Begin differentiating the content, process, and product of your lessons based on the readiness, interests, and learning profiles of your students.
  • Map out a plan for getting started with DI.
