Differentiated Instruction and Lesson Planning
This self-paced online course is targeted for teachers with adult education classrooms that contain students whose ages, native languages, educational backgrounds, and academic skills vary widely. The course walks participants through the steps of planning a differentiated lesson, including how to write effective learning objectives, choose among approaches to differentiation (content, process, product), and design assessments. Research shows that differentiated instruction is one of the most effective approaches for helping students learn. In completing the course, participants will produce their own differentiated lesson plans that are suited to their instructional content and environment.
