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.
