Differentiation



Differentation is a philosophy that enables teacehrs to plan strategically in order to reach the needs of diverse learners in classrooms today to achieve targeted standards. Differentiation is not a set of tools but a philosophy that a teacher embraces to reach the unique needs of every learner. A differentiated classroom is one in which the teacher responds to those needs.(Tomlinson, 1999)

Teachers can differentiate:
-the content students learn
-the assessment tools being used
-the performance tasks selected
-the instructional strategies used
