Fall Symposium: Getting Started with Differentiation
Please check back for 2013 dates.
About the Conference
Fall Symposium is a two-day workshop that provides participants with the underlying philosophy of differentiation and practical strategies for implementing differentiation in classrooms, schools, and districts. Dr. Carol A. Tomlinson, of the University of Virginia, leads the list of prominent researchers, administrators, and teachers in the field of differentiation. Educators who want foundational information and practical help with the first steps and stages of differentiation, or those who wish to help colleagues with the first steps and stages, will find the Fall Symposium an invaluable resource.
Fall Symposium sessions will explore:
- The relationship between differentiation and high quality curriculum, instruction, and assessment;
- Practical recommendations for setting up responsive classrooms;
- Tools for leading educational communities toward change at the classroom, school, and district level;
- Using data to drive the curriculum and instruction;
- Strategies for managing a differentiated classroom; and
- The role of principal in schools responsive to diverse students' needs.
