  1. Adaptive Dimension

  2. “Diversity has become the norm among the students in the classrooms of today” (Johnson, 1990) • Languages • Families • Cultural backgrounds • Economics • Experiential background

  3. Student Diversity • Aptitude • Achievement • Interest • Motivation • Needs • Ability

  4. Traditional Major focus on content Content acquisition Lock step progress Evolving Content & process balance Learning to learn Continuous progress Paradigm Shift in Education:Curriculum

  5. Traditional Teacher-centred Single textbook Single instructional approach Passive learning Evolving Child-centred Resource-based learning Multiple approaches to instruction Active learning Instruction

  6. Traditional Competitive System level management Supervision of learners Hierarchical structures Evolving Cooperative School-site management Empowerment of learners Professional/collegial structures Environment

  7. Students need to become … • Independent • Active • Self-organizing • Responsible • Empowered

  8. Adaptive Dimension “The concept of making adjustments in approved educational programs to accommodate diversity in student learning”

  9. Key Points • Point of reference is always the approved curriculum • Foundational objectives are NOT modified • Adaptations are made so that the objectives can be achieved • Enrich, Extend, Reinforce

  10. Principles of the Adaptive Dimension • Designed for all students • Student diversity a key consideration in planning • Assess, plan, and facilitate appropriate learning experiences for all students • Recognizes that students approach learning in multiple ways

  11. Variables to be adapted • Curriculum- as a guide, resource based learning, theming • Instruction-variety of instructional approaches • Learning environment-small groups, individual, space, time

  12. Adaptations in … • Content • Process • Product

  13. Multiple texts Varied time Contracts Compacting Group investigation Content

  14. Differentiated Classroom: What is it? “It is a classroom that provides different avenues to acquiring content, to processing or making sense of ideas, and to developing products so that each student can learn effectively.” Carol Ann Tomlinson

  15. Tiered Learning centers Multiple intelligences Graphic organizers Simulations Learning logs Process

  16. “Differentiated instruction means shaking up what goes on in the classroom so that students have multiple options for taking in information, making sense of ideas, and expressing what they learn.” Carol Ann Tomlinson

  17. Tiered product Independent study Community–based projects Multiple intelligence-based orientations Presentations Arts Multimedia Product

  18. “Differentiated instruction is not a strategy to be used from time to time, not a bag of tricks approach. It’s a way of thinking about teaching and learning.” ~ Carol Ann Tomlinson~

  19. Routes to a Differentiated Classroom • Readiness – varied texts, tiered tasks, flexible time, small group, compacting • Interest – student choice, interest groups, independent study • Learning Profile – organizers, multiple intelligences

  20. Select a few low-prep strategies • Group work • Flexible groups • Varied materials • Open-ended activities • Jigsaw • Interest explorations • Questioning techniques

  21. Add one high-prep per term • Learning contracts • Varying organizers • Tiered activities • Literature circles • Learning stations • Choice boards • Problem-based learning

  22. Robert Marzano • Nine instructional strategies • Based on research to increase student achievement • Help students of all ages and learning levels to achieve more in a wide variety of subjects

  23. Marzano’s Strategies

  24. Similarities & Differences • Comparing • Classifying • Metaphors • Analogies

  25. Note-taking • Strategies • Student outlines • Webbing • Combination notes

  26. Non-linguistic Representations • Graphic organizers • Physical models • Manipulatives • Drawing

  27. A New Direction “Teachers guide students down many paths to a common destination” Mary Anne Hess

  28. “If children can’t learn the way we teach, we should teach them the way they learn.”
