SPED-295 Differentiated Instruction

This course will facilitate differentiated instruction as an instructional approach in meeting the instructional needs and various developmental levels of all students, including special needs and second language populations.

Topics examined include: the multiple intelligences; the characteristics and dynamics of differentiated instruction; implementation of plans for meaningful instruction; identification of techniques for differentiating content, process, and product; exploration of how to differentiate on the basis of student’s readiness, interest, and learning modalities; and reflection on one’s personal beliefs and practices of instruction. Candidates are introduced to formal and informal assessment strategies as they work to develop and incorporate the use of rubrics and other grading devices. (Same as EDUC 295)
