Inspirational Teaching Strategies

PRACTICAL STEPS TO HIGH-QUALITY DIFFERENTIATION

Re-think your whole approach to challenging all pupils
About this course

Do you want to know what ‘adaptive teaching’ is and how it could revolutionise your approach to differentiation?

Do you want to know how to implement classroom-based strategies that challenge and support all pupils?

Do you want to see differentiation as integral to quality teaching rather than a ‘bolt on’ gesture?

There is no question that differentiation as an issue crops up time and again as an area requiring continued development in schools – hundreds of Inspection reports tell us this. It is also true that it is often seen as impossible to differentiate effectively for all pupils! However, by re-thinking what it actually is and by re-thinking what we do in the classroom it becomes possible to differentiate in a way that is both highly effective and highly sustainable.

Course Outcomes:
  • Understand an approach to differentiation that is based on the model of ‘adaptive teaching’
  • Experience classroom based scenarios that allow differentiation to happen
  • Learn how to ensure the strategies pass the ‘acid test’ for differentiation: are all pupils appropriately challenged?
  • Leave the course enthused and energised with increased confidence in your ability to differentiate for all
