Slide 1: 

Differentiation & TIERING

IMAGINE... : 

IMAGINE... As part of the signing-up process for this session, you had been required to complete a SURVEY.

Imagine the SURVEY RESULTS... : 

Imagine the SURVEY RESULTS... ...revealed that the participants could be placed into 3 BROAD GROUPS: I have little or no experience with TIERING. I have some experience with TIERING. I have a fair amount of experience with TIERING.

We could call these GROUPS... : 

We could call these GROUPS... I have little or no experience with TIERING. I have some experience with TIERING. I have a fair amount of experience with TIERING. Beginning MASTERY Approaching MASTERY MASTERY

Would it be... : 

Would it be... ...an APPROPRIATE CHALLENGE to ask the MASTERY LEARNERS to cover the same material in the same way as the BEGINNING MASTERY LEARNERS?

What is DIFFERENTIATION? : 

What is DIFFERENTIATION? “...an organized, yet flexible way of proactively adjusting teaching and learning to meet students where they are and help all students achieve maximum growth as learners (Tomlinson, 1999).”

What is TIERED INSTRUCTION? : 

Tiering is creating more than one version of a task so that we can respond to varied levels of READINESS. Ministry of Education Differentiation Cards, 2007 What is TIERED INSTRUCTION?

What is TIERED INSTRUCTION? : 

Tiered Assignments focus on the same learning goals for ALL STUDENTS but vary in their complexity, structure, open-endedness, or degree of independencerequired to complete the task. Ministry of Education Differentiation Cards, 2007 What is TIERED INSTRUCTION?

What is TIERED INSTRUCTION? : 

What is TIERED INSTRUCTION? “Tiered instruction is a means of teaching one concept and meeting the different learning needs in a group.” http://secondarycontent.pbworks.com/Tiering

What is a TIERED LESSON? : 

What is a TIERED LESSON? A tiered lesson is a differentiation strategy that addresses a particular standard, key concept, and generalization, but allows several pathways for students to arrive at an understanding of these components based on their interests, readiness, or learning profiles. http://www.bertiekingore.com/tieredinstruct.htm

Who is TIERING best for? : 

Who is TIERING best for? Lower leveled learners On level learners High leveled learners EVERYONE http://www.bertiekingore.com/tieredinstruct.htm

Why use TIERED INSTRUCTION? : 

Why use TIERED INSTRUCTION? So each student is appropriately challenged. ...as opposed to focusing on learning differences the focus is on the concept. it maximizes learning. http://secondarycontent.pbworks.com/Tiering

Why use TIERED INSTRUCTION? : 

Why use TIERED INSTRUCTION? “...standards demand that all students master grade-level learning standards... ...yet some learners who already know those skills and concepts may be treadmilling instead of learning.

Why use TIERED INSTRUCTION? : 

Why use TIERED INSTRUCTION? “Tiered instruction invites educators to rethink traditional educational practices based upon a prior time when students were more similar in background and readiness.” http://www.bertiekingore.com/tieredinstruct.htm

What is TIERED INSTRUCTION? : 

Tiered instruction ALIGNS complexity to the readiness levels and learning needs of students. The teacher plans different kinds and degrees of instructional support and structure, depending upon each student's level. What is TIERED INSTRUCTION? Tiered instruction allows all students to focus on essential concepts and skills yet still be CHALLENGED at the different levels on which they are individually capable of working.

What is TIERED INSTRUCTION? : 

As teachers consider students' assessed readiness levels, it becomes obvious that everyone is not at the same place in their learning and that different tiered tasks are needed to OPTIMIZE every student's classroom experience. What is TIERED INSTRUCTION? Tiered instruction blends assessment and instruction. Before initiating each segment of learning, the teacher completes a pre-assessment to determine what students know and then prescribes content materials and learning experiences that promote continued learning for each student. http://www.bertiekingore.com/tieredinstruct.htm

What is a TIERED LESSON? : 

What is a TIERED LESSON? Tiered instruction is like a stairwell providing access within the LARGE BUILDING called learning. The bottom story represents learning tasks for students with LESS READINESS and FEWER SKILLS. The stairwell continues through enough levels to reach the appropriate challenge for ADVANCED READINESS students with very high skills and complex understanding. http://www.bertiekingore.com/tieredinstruct.htm

What is a TIERED LESSON? : 

What is a TIERED LESSON? Tiered instruction is like a stairwell providing access within the LARGE BUILDING called learning. There isn't always a student working on every stairwell level as students progress through tiers of learning at different paces. Also, within each tier, there simultaneously can be multiple small-group activities presenting different ways to learn. Some floors in the stairwell even have MULTIPLE STAIRWAYS as students access higher learning levels differently. http://www.bertiekingore.com/tieredinstruct.htm

What can be DIFFERENTIATED? : 

What can be DIFFERENTIATED? Instruction may be differentiated in content/input, process/ sense-making, or product/output.” (Tomlinson, 1999)

What guides DIFFERENTIATION? : 

What guides DIFFERENTIATION? “...students’ readiness, interest, or learning style...” based on ASSESSMENT before and during the learning.
