Session 5: Practising the Practices: Applying Differentiated Instruction (DI) Strategies <Welcome participants.> Adapted from Dr. Marian Small’s presentation August, 2008

2 Goals for Session 5 Reflect on open questions and parallel tasks
Practise adapting lessons to be more inclusive Practise using generic DI strategies presented in Session 1. <Share the goals of the session.>

Placemat Individually write a response to the question. What are the advantages and disadvantages of open questions and parallel tasks? Share in your group and place common or key elements in the centre.

After three minutes tell them to share in their groups and place common or key elements in the centre of their placemats. After 5 minutes ask groups to share their discussions.>
