One-Room Schoolhouses 2.0: Strategies for Differentiation in Today’s Classrooms
Workshop177Tracy Inman, Tracy Inman Consulting, United States

Many teachers in the early 1900s (at least in the United States) taught in one-room schoolhouses with ages and grades in one place; they differentiated daily in order to address the needs of their wide range of students. It was best practice. One hundred years later, differentiation is still considered to be best practice, yet it proves to be a most challenging aspect of teaching today. This practical workshop tackles that challenge head-on by exploring research-based, real-world strategies for both preassessment and differentiation. After learning about these strategies via student examples and actual practice, participants will leave with tools to differentiate process, content, and product through readiness and interest.
