Differentiation is currently facing negativity due to confusion surrounding its definition and expectations. Teachers are often filled with dread when they hear the terms ‘scaffolding up’, ‘adaptive teaching’ or ‘differentiation’ are introduced and assume it’s going to mean more work for them. It isn’t implicitly clear to teachers how to go about differentiation and who it applies to in their classroom.
Catrina Lowri joins Dale today to tell us how differentiation will make life easier for teachers and that good differentiation should be for everyone – ‘Turning differentiation on its head’.
Listen to hear simple principles that can be implemented in daily lessons without much extra effort. Teachers want inclusion but are time and resource poor, Catrina shows ways to get better results within the limits of a mainstream classroom.
