Differentiation

Differentiation is all the rage in the District and is the topic of discussion among the staff and parents in the District this year. I believe differentiated curriculum is essential in every classroom and you really get to see it in action in a multi-age classroom. Curriculum activities are targeted to the developmental needs of a wide range of ages and students progress along a continuum of simple to more complex material at their own pace. Differentiation works well to meet the needs of children on both ends of the academic spectrum.  As a School Board Member, I would encourage collaboration among the schools in the differentiated curriculum discussion in the District.
