The purpose of this class is to develop strategies that can help all students reach their potential. The course will specify what differentiation is, how to incorporate it into the curriculum, and how it can be applied to the classroom. The class will examine the areas of the classroom and instruction that can be differentiated and how the teacher can use a variety of strategies to modify their teaching. The text will present real-life examples of differentiated lesson plans, and teachers will work to create their own activities and strategies to help differentiate their own classrooms. Last, we will examine how a teacher can make sure that they are ready to get started and the steps to make sure that they follow through with differentiating the classroom.
