Have you ever endured a professional development session that was completely unhelpful? If you’re nodding yes, we’re right there with you. In fact, one of the worst PDs we ever attended was on the topic of differentiation, and after several hours of listening to completely unhelpful and impractical strategies, our principal turned to our faculty and said… I’m so sorry.
Yep, it was that bad. So, with that being said, today on the podcast we have several differentiation strategies for you that will work, and that you will find easy to implement. Remember, a strategy is only useful if it’s practical and manageable, and we understand how much is on every middle school teacher’s plate.
