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.
Let’s do a DI self-assessment
Differentiation based on
research and writings of:
Carol Ann Tomlinson
Professor of Educational Leadership

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.
Dive Into Designing
Your Own
Using the class profile and the
resources from the centers, design a
differentiated activity on a particular
topic
The Equalizer
Let’s come up for some air…
Which fish best represents
your personality?
How do I plan for
differentiation?

Let’s take a look at a
differentiated lesson plan
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

Differentiation and
Assessment
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?Discuss in groups of four.
Assessment Continuum
The Photo Album Approach
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
Indicate on each continuum how strongly you feel about
the statement given.
