The third and final workshop in the School of Education 2017-2018 series Research-Based Strategies to Enhance Learning for All Students will be held on Friday, March 16, 2018, at the Division of Continuing Education (DCE) Building, Yosemite Room ABC (Classrooms 2070-2090), 510 Peltason Drive.
Carol Ann Tomlinson, from the University of Virginia Curry School of Education, will lead an interactive exploration of "Thinking about Differentiation: A Status Check and a Look Ahead."
As part of this interactive workshop, Professor Tomlinson will discuss elements and attributes of quality differentiation—the kind that makes a powerful difference in student success. She also will explore ways in which teachers can take their own “next steps” in effectively addressing academic diversity in their own classrooms. In both instances, she will draw on classroom videos and teacher lesson plans so that the ideas discussed are rooted in practice and practicality.
Workshop topics will include the following:
