EDUC 61605 Differentiation through Instructional Strategies

This course is designed to provide a framework wherein candidates will review differentiation within the structure of research-based instructional strategies. Application will be made through videotapes and written commentary of current classroom practices. This includes providing evidence of student learning through the description, analysis, and reflection of the candidate's work. Emphasis will be given to Component 3 of the National Boards process. Examining differentiation and the instructional strategies that best target student learning is part of Phase I, Architecture of Accomplished Teaching, allowing for reflection on the candidate's current practice and how that practice may change through the certification process. There are no prerequisites for this course; however, the Teacher Leader Program is a cohort model. It is expected that the courses will be taken in the required sequence.
