T&L 2900: VIR: Shaping Instruction for Individual Needs

All students are not created equal. Skills, interests, and abilities vary greatly, regardless of proficiency. In order to best support each student's learning on an individual level, curricula need to be altered, edited, and enriched - in other words, instruction needs to be differentiated. There is strong evidence and consensus that the formative assessment process used by teachers and students during instruction has very powerful and positive effects on student achievement. On the other hand, there is little evidence that externally imposed high-stake tests have improved school quality or reduced achievement score gaps. This course describes differentiation and assessment practices and the powerful impact they can have on student achievement including fully supporting the academic achievement of English Learners (ELLs), and the need to learn grade-level, discipline-specific content while they are building English proficiency.
