Differentiation: Strategies Listings 1 to Z

Any quality instructional strategy can be differentiated. Using a learner-centric lens–Readiness, Interests, and/or Learning Preferences–there are many different ways a strategy or learning activity can be adapted or redesigned to meet the diverse needs of students in a whole group (3-Dimensional Instruction), small groups (Collaboration Strategies and Think Dots) and individually (RAFTs and Frayer Model), to name a few. Here is a list of “some” strategies as a place to start. Feel free to share your particular needs on this form or through Twitter @JMcCarthyEdS. An answer will follow to assist you.
