Lesson 2: Strategies to Differentiate Instruction

Differentiating involves making changes to one or more of these elements:

  1. Content - what the teacher plans to teach/ what the students need to learn
  2. Process - how the students will access the information/ activities students use to master the content
  3. Product - the method students use to demonstrate learning

Differentiating by way of Content

  • Is usually determined by formative assessment
  • Can include various forms of delivery
  • Content may be shared through varied reading materials for different levels
  • Text materials could be put on an audio format
  • Spelling and vocabulary lists can be used based on the readiness level of individual students
  • Flexible grouping can be implemented to reteach concepts and or extend thinking skills
  • Multi-leveled questions can be used
  • Modeling to varying degrees takes place
