Differentiation and Assessment in Middle School

Differentiation and Assessment in Middle School


Course Description

In this course, educators will learn how to create lesson plans and assessment systems that enable them to prepare students for standard testing and still offer differentiated instruction that respects their different needs and individuality. Quality pre-assessments will help shape the differentiating teacher's instructional choices and processes while formative assessment takes a primary role in the differentiated classroom providing feedback, documenting progress, and guiding instructional decisions. This course is designed to manage the differentiated classroom by offering students nurturing, rigorous, fair, and differentiated instruction that encourages student engagement, leading to improved academic success.
