Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, January 3, 2014 10:04 AM

"Differentiated instruction implies a purposeful process for adapting the teaching and learning processes of the classroom to accommodate the needs of all learners" (Murray & Jorgenson, 2007, p. 1).

 

 

 

Carol Ann Tomlinson summarizes that "a differentiated classroom provides different avenues to acquiring content, to processing or making sense of ideas, and to developing products so that each student can learn effectively" (Tomlinson, 2001, p. 1). 

 

 

 

When a teacher tries to teach something to the entire class at the same time, “chances are, one-third of the kids already know it; one-third will get it; and the remaining third won’t.  So two-thirds of the children are wasting their time.”  - Lilian Katz

Great article that clears up misconceptions.
