Being to able to adapt to different styles of learners in your classroom is an important tool all teachers need.
Unit 1: Your presentation is straightforward of what differentiated instruction is which is nice. As a teacher, there are many things going on in the classroom, both instructionally and elsewhere, so it is nice to have a straightforward method of presenting your topic initially. Your reflection is clearly connected to your unit objectives.
Unit 2: I like that you have 2 separate lessons. First you have a an activity that lays out a general method of doing data analysis and then have participants do an application for their own school district. What about participants who are not currently teaching?
Unit 3: It starts out well but it isn’t finished so I’m interested to see how you introduce and help troubleshooting with using the computer to analyze data. Will we just be reading about computer analysis or participating in actual analysis?
Unit 4-How will you have participants reflect and evaluate the effectiveness of the differentiated instruction? An idea is to rework a previously done lesson and compare and contrast results from both lessons; or predict results from the reworked lesson for someone who isn’t currently teaching or is subbing.
