Course Syllabus


Creating lessons and assessments that meet the needs of all the types of learners in our classrooms can be a very daunting task. Students are unique individuals and learn in very different ways. In this course, we will explore why differentiation is necessary and how to implement it. We will create lessons differentiated by learning styles as well as ability levels. In the end, we will critique what we already do in our classrooms and design new ideas that will lead to effective instruction for all our students.
