Differentiated Lesson Planning That Works

Lutheran educators work to create lessons that are student-based. This course familiarizes the teacher with a number of differentiated instructional strategies. These include flexible grouping, menu boards, cubing, web-quests, rafts, and tiered tasks.

Course participants will create and deliver an instructional unit that incorporates the phases of differentiated instruction: Development of understandings, pre-assessment, content delivery, summative assessment and/or application activities, and reflection/closure activities. Video models of differentiated lessons will be provided as examples.

Following the Teaching That Works model, the course is job-embedded, collaborative, reflective, and practical.

Instructor: Dr. Carrie Pfieffer, DMLC '81
