Workshop Description: 
Every student learns and processes information differently. As teachers, it is our job to help students succeed regardless of these differences and to acknowledge those differences and differentiate our instruction to engage students in the process of learning. In the workshop, participants will learn how to engage students by modifying content, differentiating the ways we teach, and being flexible on how to assess students.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Define and explain what differentiated instruction is
  • Identify essential differentiated principles to implement differentiated instruction in the classroom
  • Learn how to implement differentiated strategies and hands-on examples in their classrooms

Clock Hours:
Participants who attend the entire workshop are eligible for 3 clock hours (partial clock hours cannot be awarded).
