In effective classrooms, according to Jay McTighe and Carol Ann Tomlinson, teachers consistently attend to at least four elements; whom they teach, where they teach, what they teach, and how they teach. They continue to say, “If teachers lose sight of any one of the elements and cease investing effort in it, the whole fabric of their work is damaged and the quality of learning impaired.”

Faculty Conversation: Carol Tomlinson on Differentiation

In education circles, Carol Ann Tomlinson is known as the guru of differentiation. Her research-based work is in such high demand that she has made more than 700 presentations and keynote addresses to school districts and professional associations across the country and abroad since joining the Curry School in 1991. She has authored 17 books on the topics of differentiated instruction and curriculum, some of which have been translated into twelve languages. 

In this Curry conversation, Tomlinson offers her take on what makes differentiation so important for students.
