The art of differentiation happens through design, re-design, and new strategy as they apply to ELL students. Participants in this e-course will reinvent lessons using research-based, effective methods of differentiation specifically for ELL 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 Objectives:

  • Design and implement differentiated lessons using research-based strategies geared toward ELL students. 
  • Apply design strategy for grouping and classroom environment. 
  • Plan for use and implement with online and print tools for differentiation such as learning profiles, interest surveys and tiered questioning.
