With differentiation, teachers develop personalized and targeted instruction in order to most effectively teach to each student based on their current understanding and their needs as learners.
Teachers in District 109 differentiate for every student, every day, all day.
In District 109:
- Flexible groups are sometimes run by differentiation, literacy or math coaches in addition to classroom teachers.
- Grade levels across the District teach the same strategies, skills and content; however, the way in which the instruction is delivered may vary.
- Different activities may be used across different schools or in different classrooms within the same school.
You can view more details about specific ways in which teachers differentiate instruction in Differentiation in District 109, as well as in the District109 Response to Intervention Plan, both of which will be posted here before the start of the 2013-2014 school year.
