In this course, Differentiation and Literacy, you will learn to differentiate your instruction to reach children of varying literacy readiness levels, both elementary and secondary. You will learn ways to improve your instruction by adopting a growth mindset and will practice strategies such as flexible grouping to enrich your literacy instruction. You will review the English Language Arts Common Core Standards and will explore methods to create differentiated literacy lesson plans to address those standards. You will discuss methods to develop a positive classroom culture. You will review effective methods of both self-assessment and other forms of assessment to guide your differentiation.
