10 QUESTIONS to Determine Success in Differentiating Instruction:
Are we willing to teach in whatever way is necessary for students to learn best, even if the approach doesn’t match our own preferences?
Do we have the courage to do what works, not just what’s easiest?
Do we actively seek to understand our students’ knowledge, skills, and talents so we can provide an appropriate match for their learning needs? And once we discover their individual strengths and weaknesses, do we actually adapt our instruction to respond to their needs?
