|Web Quest for Differentiation|
Examine “All Children Can Learn download“. Then, search the web for effective, evidence-based differentiated strategies that are engaging, motivating, and address the needs of individual learners.
First, provide five evidence-based strategies:
- Two instructional strategies (i.e., graphic organizers),
- Two instructional tools (e.g., technology tool, device or iPad App, Web Quests, etc.),
- One activity (e.g., Think-Pair-Share).
Second, for the two instructional strategies you listed explain how you can alter each to address the classroom needs you designed in Weeks One and Two and how the modification is relevant to the theory of differentiation.
Guided Response: Choose one of the five strategies identified by at least two of your peers. Evaluate the real-world application of this strategy and offer at least one suggestion, supported by the research (cite your sources), to make it accessible to a population who may have been overlooked including students with special needs, English language learners, gifted students, or another unique population.
