Introducing Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom (Grades K-2) provides the teacher with explicit and systemized instructions for teaching your students how to independently work in centers. It answers the most important question for teachers using differentiated instruction,
“How do I get all of the kids to meaningfully work without my assistance?”
I wrote my latest resource to help new teachers roll out D.I. in their own classrooms. But, in using it, I've found that seasoned teachers have benefitted from the step-by-step instructions used to teach even the youngest students.
As a coach, I've modeled the procedures for several teachers now, while they've followed along using the guide. It has made introducing centers a piece of cake!
Take a look at what is included in this 14-paged resource:
· Detailed list of materials for each center
