Teaching can be a little bit like driving a water skiing boat — you need to pay attention to where you are going and you also need to constantly be checking on the skiers behind you! In “Differentiation in the Real World: Content,” Lisa Van Gemert explains that differentiation means meeting kids where they are and also having a goal for where you want them to be, just like the driver of the boat. In this course, teachers will learn how differentiating content for students will help drive their learning more effectively.

Our world is differentiated. We don’t expect the doctor to give every patient the same treatment regardless of their ailment, or that everyone will wear the same shoe size. Yet we often try to squeeze our students into uniform patterns of learning. Differentiating content helps students connect with learning goals in a way that is appropriate to their needs.

In “Differentiation in the Real World: Content,” Lisa Van Gemert helps teachers with practical ideas about how to know where you need to go through pre-assessment and then how to differentiate content effectively using depth and complexity icons.

In this 1-hour course, teachers will learn how to differentiate content using:

  • Pre-assessment activities
  • Depth and complexity icons
  • Student interest
