Premise A textbook is not the best tool to differentiate instruction.                                                                                                               

A textbook is not the best tool to differentiate instruction.

What one teacher said to me: “ We don’t really use our textbooks except to flip through the pictures, because the content is not appropriate for our kids.”

What one teacher said to me:

“ We don’t really use our textbooks except to flip through the pictures, because the content is not appropriate for our kids.”

The Need for Differentiation Our students are coming to us with Different backgrounds Different ability levels Different reading levels Different language proficiencies Different learning styles Textbooks are not working for many students Differentiating instruction is the only way to give all students a chance at success

Implementation Model Options One-to-one Shared resource As a station for structured centers As an open station for individual or group work “Check out” basis

An Approach that Works Identify a grade level and curriculum area. Start with the existing content objectives and current curriculum (standards, textbooks, instructional resources). Look at which student objectives are most critical and which mobile technologies lend themselves to those objectives. Develop or adapt materials for those tools based on current curriculum. (Don’t forget copyright!)
