Today's suggestions of effective differentiation strategies come from Katherine S. McKnight, Jessica Hockett, Christie Amburn, Elise Yerkey and Barbara Blackburn. I've also included readers' comments.
Three well-known educators/authors provide guest responses offering effective ways to differentiate instruction: Regie Routman, Carol Ann Tomlinson, and Laura Robb.
This week's question comes from an educator who wishes to remain anonymous: Differentiating for students, as I understand it, entails meeting students at their levels, but the end goal is to ensure that they meet the standards for the grade level. What happens when, for whatever reason, you have one or more students who are reading several grade levels below and even the lowest level expectation for that child/ren will still not enable the student/s to meet the standard for the grade level?
I wrap-up a four-part series today on classroom management with two special contributions: one from well-known educator (and regular contributor to this column) Suzie Boss, who talks about the tricky subject of classroom management specifically during Project-Based Learning lessons; and the other from ASCD author Jane Bluestein. In addition, I include multiple comments from readers.
