Academic Diversity & Differentiation Institute (LA)

The diversity in today’s classrooms presents educators with a great opportunity and a great challenge. The opportunity calls on teachers and school leaders to create environments, use resources, and craft frameworks of learning that enable the diverse range of individuals to learn together. When we are wise stewards of that opportunity, our students are successful academically, and we contribute to a world in which citizens can function well together. The challenge, of course, is how to create, grow, and sustain such environments. This two-day Summer Institute will introduce, expand on, and model key elements of differentiated instruction, seen through the unique lens of long-term, sustained school change.  

Designed for teachers, teacher leaders, coaches, and administrative leaders, some segments within the Institute will bring together educators in examination and discussion of what effective differentiation looks like and how teachers and leaders can support growth in differentiating effectively. There will also be opportunities for break-out sessions, giving topical choices and inviting participants to focus either on deeper classroom implementation of differentiation or the creation of schoolwide cultural conditions in which differentiated practices can flourish and be sustained.  

Participants will explore:

  • The core components of a differentiated classroom and school

  • Curricular and pedagogical strategies for differentiation, including tiered lessons and tasks and interest-based lessons

  • Assessment tools for effective instructional planning, including the distinct roles of formative and summative assessment

  • The research and purpose of feedback and grading in a differentiated classroom

  • How leadership styles and concerns may hinder long-term change toward differentiation

  • Structures and methods to create a relationship-rich and focused conversation framework to lead a dialogue about differentiation in their departments/schools

  • Pathways around roadblocks to differentiation at the classroom and school level

This Institute is aimed at elementary, middle, and high school teachers and administrators.
