Differentiated Instruction (DI)
Differentiating content, process, products, or learning environment to meet the individual needs of students.
- Recognizes students’ varied background knowledge, readiness levels, language preferences and interests, and tailors instruction accordingly
- Promotes flexible student grouping by readiness, interest, and learning profiles
- Employs various modes of instructional delivery
- Plans relevant learning opportunities that are student-centered
- Maximizes each student’s growth and individual success by meeting each student at their level of need
- Nurtures a change in faculty “mindset” not simply the use of “different” instructional strategies
