June 10-11 – Differentiation = Classroom Management – with Lora Danker

June 10 @ 8:00 am - June 11 @ 4:30 pm

Monday, June 10 – Tuesday, June 11 (8:00am – 4:30pm)

Great teachers have a ready tool kit of differentiated strategies that make their classrooms centers of learning. To share those strategies with other educators only makes us as individuals stronger and our classrooms more engaging. This course will provide participants with opportunities to engage in conversation and best practice work around the topic of differentiation in the classroom. Through readings, research, websites, and discussion, strategies will be shared that participants may consider when working with their own curriculum. Participants will set a relevant SMART goal for this upcoming school year and will have the opportunity to process and plan. Participants are encouraged to bring curriculum or a classroom unit you are developing. Teams are allowed to work together if they choose. The course will be differentiated to meet the needs of participants. All are welcome.

Course Objectives:

  • Review the Iowa Code and participant district policies regarding differentiation
  • Study the categories of differentiation and consider how they might be useful when planning
  • Read and analyze readings, research, and websites
