this blog we have often considered how to help students develop their
thinking. However, in this article, the authors recognize students
think differently and they share some ideas for differentiating
instruction in order to address those differences.
Sacramento, Calif., authors Katie Hull-Sypnieski and Larry Ferlazzo, both members of the Teacher Leaders Network, offer five strategies for differentiating instruction to meet students' diverse needs, along with five best practices for employing the strategies in the classroom. Among the strategies, they suggest educators first develop trust and build relationships with students to help prompt ideas for creating individual assignments.
