Re: differentiation: Sandy

You're so right, Beth! It's that more specific, individualized instruction
and direct teaching that sometimes happens when a child asks a thoughtful
(and thought-provoking) question that gets everyone thinking about their task in
a new way! What I've learned so far is that I can "differentiate" (or
change/improve) in 4 areas: the content of the lesson, my process or teaching
style, the learning environment, and the final product (the learning). And we
all do these things every day, or can see how we could -- that's the unexpected
dimension you spoke about. It's actual very exciting stuff - just the
formal writing of it all that had me a bit stumped for a while! Thanks for your
note! Sandy
