T&L 2900: ONL: Student-Driven Differentiation
Grounded in Lisa Westman's book: Student-Driven Differentiation, 8 Steps to Harmonize Learning in the Classroom, participants will get a step-by-step guide to help plan a differentiated unit to take back to their own classroom. When students have choice and voice in what they are doing and learning about, engagement and ownership increase. Teachers will learn how to give students voice and choice while still providing a structure grounded in standards and measurable objectives.
Participants will be responsible for purchasing their own book for the course. The book is divided into nine chapters. Participants will respond to questions or prompts following the reading of each chapter. Following the book study, participants will create a differentiated unit plan to implement in their own classroom and reflect back on how the unit went.
