  2. Differentiating Content • Differentiation refers to differing content, process (or skills) and products of the core curriculum to make that curriculum more responsive to students’ individual needs, abilities, and interests.

  3. Role of Content Imperatives in a Differentiated Curriculum • Content imperatives represent a set of terms that activate higher levels of knowing. • They focus the investigation of a topic of study from a broad, general area to a more structured and specific one.

  4. Role of Content Imperatives in a Differentiated Curriculum continued • They demand more sophisticated resources of information, more analytical thinking to understand the subject matter and more complicated products to share what has been learned.

  5. Content Imperatives Relationship with Depth and Complexity • The relationship is significant. • Each set of prompts strengthens students abilities to focus on and investigate knowledge at more advanced and sophisticated levels. • When used in tandem, the content imperatives provide specificity to those dimensions.

  6. When using both sets of prompts • Keep in mind • The learning experience should be feasible for the student to accomplish. • The learning experience should be worth the time and effort students must expend in order to accomplish the task.

  7. Origin:or how things got started or began. Parallel:or how areas of study share common characteristics. Convergence:or how ideas meet to form a new or different idea.
