Our educational institutions have kept habits in place for so long, that we have become a profession of loners. So many teachers are creating magic in their classrooms, yet other teachers struggle with the very same curriculum, lessons and student populations. This is unfortunate!  Through the use of our matrix, we demonstrate how individual teachers are sharing their best efforts and successes with others and how entire schools are sharing best practices across grade levels and subjects. Our Sharing Best Practices component prevents teachers from reinventing the wheel or suffering through ineffective methods already tried by others. This guided strategy is both powerful and useful as we learn to share successes and celebrate the great learning going on in our classrooms.

Differentiated Instruction Benefits All Students

 

  • Students come into our classrooms and schools with different backgrounds, cultures and a wide range of cognitive abilities, assets and experiences.  Sometimes the only thing students in a classroom have in common is their age!
  • Fair does not always mean equal – sometimes we need to think “outside the box” so that we can meet the needs of our diverse learning population.  In order to be fair to all students we must differentiate their learning AND our instruction.

If schools were permitted to have just one training, this is the one!

This training will help to raise test scores for your students, decrease discipline challenges, and improve classroom rapport. You will learn how to meet students where they are and lead them where they need to be, capture attention, and promote deeper learning.
