The art of differentiation happens through design, re-design, and flexible teaching strategy. Participants in this e-course will reinvent lessons using research-based, effective methods for differentiation geared specifically for ENL students. They'll have opportunities to re-purpose lesson plans, understand readiness versus ability, and capitalize on brain plasticity to engage students through intellect and creativity. Learning profiles, interest surveys, cognitive-friendly learning environments, tiered questioning and student "hooks" for rigorous learning application are some of the takeaways to this e-course.

Course Outcomes:

  • Create differentiated lessons through design and strategy focused on the language needs of ENL students.
  • Use design strategy for mixed-ability grouping and classroom environment.
  • Use online and print tools for differentiation such as learning profiles, interest surveys and tiered questioning focused on the needs of ENL students.
