Bringing learning to the playground

Differentiation

Differentiation is always an area we seem to be talking about in schools. It is the process of learning through our planning. Are we over complicating it? I always think when planning about the different types of learners I have in my classroom and how I am going to get them to understand the concept I’m teaching them. Differentiation is about process – pathway, pitch, explanation, access, pace, progress, choice, resource and level of challenge. Asking yourself what do I want them to know and understand? How will they get there? How will I know that they have understood? Helps when planning.
