A Framework for Differentiation

A Framework for Differentiation | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"Differentiation is adjusting and modifying what skills and concepts student learn, what materials the use, and/or how their learning is assessed based on the needs of the students.

Our students are not all the same, so we cannot expect that teaching a lesson one way will reach every student."

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Edudemic

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Edudemic | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"Carol Ann Tomlinson, author of “The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners,” is the country’s preeminent scholar on differentiated instruction. Tomlinson defines differentiated learning as “ensuring that what a student learns, how he/she learns it, and how the student demonstrates what he/she has learned is a match for that student’s readiness level, interests, and preferred mode of learning.” She likens the reluctance to integrate modern knowledge of the learning process into the classroom to settling for a Model T instead of embracing 21st-century engineering."

This post explores some of Carol Ann Tomlinon's work on differentiation. Specifically it looks at:

* Content

* Process

* Product

* Affect

After defining each of these concepts you will find the following sections:

* The Empirical Basis of Differentiation

* Implementing Differentiation in your Classroom

* Anecdotal Support for this Method

* Criticisms of Differentiation

Many teachers find it difficult to find the time to differentiate for all students and some students find it frustration to discover that they have more work than other students. Today we are often told that we need to personalize the instruction for each student. Differentiation is one way we can walk down this road.

Updated Personalization vs. Differentiation vs. Individualization Chart Version 3

Updated Personalization vs. Differentiation vs. Individualization Chart Version 3 | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

From your feedback, we revised the chart so assessment AS, OF, and FOR learning was clarified for each of the terms. 


Individualization involves assessment OF learning. This is where summative assessment is grade-based and involves testing to confirm what learners know and do not know.

 

Differentiation involves assessment FOR learning and OF learning. This is assessment that involves time-based testing where teachers provide feedback to advance learning.

 

Personalization involves assessment AS learning, FOR learning, and a minimal OF learning. This is where teachers develop capacity so learners become independent learners who set goals, monitor progress, and reflect on learning. Assessments are based on mastery.
