Meeting the Needs of All Students with the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) Fulton County Board of Education Roundtable February 27, 2007
Fulton County Board of Education Policy IHE: Each student must be accepted on the level at which he/she is functioning and should be challenged to move through the curriculum at a rate commensurate with the students total capabilities. Quality Core Curriculum (QCC) Continuous Achievement Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) Differentiation Fulton Countys Continuous Achievement Model for English Language Arts and Mathematics Differentiation with acceleration and support (accelerated remediation) as appropriate
Curriculum Differentiation Differentiation is the fit or match of the curriculum to the needs of the learner. Differentiated instruction promotes high-level and powerful curriculum for all students, but varies the level of teacher support, task complexity, pacing, and avenues to learning based on student readiness, interest, and learning profile. (Tomlinson, 2000)
