1 Dare to Differentiate II: Diving Deeper Deborah Espitia, Coordinator Leslie Grahn, Resource Teacher Office of World Languages Howard County Public Schools, MD Deborah Espitia, Coordinator Leslie Grahn, Resource Teacher Office of World Languages Howard County Public Schools, MD

2 How deep is your DI IQ? Are you  Doing the back float?  Snorkeling?  Scuba diving?  Deep sea diving? Are you  Doing the back float?  Snorkeling?  Scuba diving?  Deep sea diving?

3 Get ready to scuba! Mixed Readiness Groups

4 Tips for a successful scuba experience  Have good equipment  Is easier in smaller groups  Become familiar with dive site  Take diving instruction class  Always use buddy system  Slowly Ascend From Every dive  When in trouble: STOP, THINK, BREATH, ACT  Have good equipment  Is easier in smaller groups  Become familiar with dive site  Take diving instruction class  Always use buddy system  Slowly Ascend From Every dive  When in trouble: STOP, THINK, BREATH, ACT

5 How do these same tips apply to Differentiated Instruction?  Have good equipment  Is easier in smaller groups  Become familiar with dive site  Take diving instruction class  Always use buddy system  Slowly Ascend From Every dive  When in trouble: STOP, THINK, BREATH, ACT  Have good equipment  Is easier in smaller groups  Become familiar with dive site  Take diving instruction class  Always use buddy system  Slowly Ascend From Every dive  When in trouble: STOP, THINK, BREATH, ACT

6 Session outcomes Participants will… 1.review the basic principles of differentiation and deepen their knowledge about differentiated instruction. 2.analyze artifacts and create activities for implementing differentiation strategies. 3.explore the process of planning for differentiation. 4.gain multiple perspectives on differentiation of assessment.

7 Let’s do a DI self-assessment

8 Differentiation based on research and writings of: Carol Ann Tomlinson Professor of Educational Leadership University of Virginia Carol Ann Tomlinson Professor of Educational Leadership University of Virginia

9 Differentiation Non-Negotiables  Supportive learning environment  Continuous assessment  High-quality curriculum  Respectful tasks  Flexible grouping  Supportive learning environment  Continuous assessment  High-quality curriculum  Respectful tasks  Flexible grouping

10 The Cogs of Differentiation Tomlinson, 2003

11 Differentiation is a teacher’s response to learners’ needs guided by general principles of differentiation, such as respectful tasks ongoing assessment flexible grouping Teachers can differentiate according to students’ through a range of instructional and management strategies Process ContentProduct Interests Learning Profile Readiness

14 Let’s dive into some DI-nalysis Choice Boards RAFT Assignments Tiered Assignments Learning Centers Cubing & Think Dots

15 Let’s dive into some DI-nalysis At each station, you will 1. Choose an artifact and analyze it using your organizer 2. Process the strategy with the group using the prompt provided The goal of this exploration is to prepare you to create a differentiated activity of your own.

16 Dive Into Designing Your Own Using the class profile and the resources from the centers, design a differentiated activity on a particular topic

17 The Equalizer

18 Let’s come up for some air…

19 Which fish best represents your personality?

20 How do I plan for differentiation? Let’s take a look at a differentiated lesson plan

21 Developing A Differentiated Lesson Plan Sketch out an outline for a lesson you have recently done from beginning to end. Analyze which learners your activities address Multiple intelligences Learning preferences Readiness levels Interests cagle.msnbc.com/news/BLOG/SAUDI.asp

22 Developing A Differentiated Lesson Plan Identify activities that are anchors which the whole class needs to experience.

23 Developing A Differentiated Lesson Plan Choose an activity which would be appropriate to differentiate How will you differentiate it? ContentLearning profile ProcessInterest ProductReadiness

24 Differentiation and Assessment

25 Reflecting on our current practice: Assessment Principles  Which principles affirm your own beliefs?  Are there any that challenge your beliefs or experience?  What are the implications of each principle?  Which principles affirm your own beliefs?  Are there any that challenge your beliefs or experience?  What are the implications of each principle? Discuss in groups of four.

26 Assessment Continuum Tapping Prior Knowledge Pre- Assessment Checks for Understanding Observations Teacher Questions Assignments Peer Assessment Self Assessment Quizzes & Tests Performance Tasks Teacher Feedback Rubrics

27 The Photo Album Approach

28 Grappling with the deepest issues around differentiation of assessment  Giving students different assessments  Giving some students more support on assessments  Grading students on different rubrics  Grading for growth  Giving students different assessments  Giving some students more support on assessments  Grading students on different rubrics  Grading for growth Indicate on each continuum how strongly you feel about the statement given.
