Through this seminar, participants will come to understand, through discussion and practice, four important steps to ensure that differentiated intruction will lead to mastery of a goal for each student:
Step 1: How can we unpack standards and objectives into learning progressions?
Step 2: How should we assess student current performance level in terms of their progression in a variety of contexts?
Step 3: How can we create a progression of activities that foster intrinsic motivation?
Step 4. How can we enable students to monitor their own progress?
