Differentiated Instruction:  Planes, Trains, & Automobiles!



21st Century teachers recognize the need to focus on the journey, not the destination.  Differentiated instruction is the vehicle.  Curriculum standards are the guideposts.  Customized itineraries promote student success.  Join us on the journey!

  • Participants will receive an overview of differentiated instruction.
  • Participants will work collaboratively to produce extension menus and choice boards.
  • Please bring an idea which you typically teach in the first quarter of school, paper, and pencil.

Title: Working Smarter, Not Harder



Differentiating instruction does not have to be overwhelming or “more work” for teachers. In fact, we will show how you can save yourself time and engage students in their learning. We will provide an overview of differentiation as well as strategies and examples for classroom use. After a general discussion, we will break into K-5 and 6-12 groups to share implementation strategies.

Critical Thinking – Collaboration – Communication – Creativity Through Differentiation



“When we catch fish we bait the hook with what the fish like, not with what the fisherman likes.” – Gregory and Chapman



“Teachers need to envision their classroom as an “escalator” going higher and higher not as a stairwell that takes students to a certain grade level landing where they stop.” (Carol Ann Tomlinson.) Take your students to the next level by differentiating in all subject areas and grade levels.  This workshop will provide an overview of basic differentiation for all teachers, showing participants how to use the right “bait” in the classroom.
