Do You Differentiate?

Get More Bang for Your Buck When You Differentiate
Lesson/Unit Planning Template

I attended a phenomenal differentiated instruction workshop last week presented by Laureen Reynolds, and she said, "Sitting in a different place in the room and working with a smaller group of students don't mean your differentiating instruction."

You can differentiate in small groups, but small groups in and of themselves do not mean you're differentiating for students readiness levels.

The template below is meant to serve as a guide as you plan differentiated units - and to remind you that assessment drives instruction. This template is modified from an idea I picked up at Laureen's workshop. If she's ever presenting near you, attending the session will be worth your time.
