My topic focuses on providing more differentiated learning opportunities in the classroom. The idea of differentiated materials allows for instruction to be provided in many different activities, instead of just learning by the traditional teacher run instruction. A way of providing differentiated instruction is through the idea of Choice Boards. Choice boards focus on one domain, where students are given the choice of activities they need to complete. These activities are hands on, partner base ( students learn from each other) activities that practice skills that are being taught in the present as well as skills that have been taught.
 
  
Students take ownership of their learning, learn from each other, practice skills, practices skills in different situations allowing for deeper understanding. Students apply knowledge in different situations allowing for deeper understanding.

Introduction

"But do they really get it?", is a BIG question that is asked consistently by teachers throughout the day. Teachers are consistently coming up with new ways that will better help their students learn. This could be new activities, different strategies or just a new approach. When creating these new activities, strategies and approaches a teacher needs to keep in mind that all students are different. They think differently, act differently and learn differently. Therefore, it is important to Differentiate materials for all learners. WAIT A MINUTE! What does Differentiate mean? How can I differentiate my instruction? You have come to the right place! In this mini course, you will find all the answers to those two question and more!!
