The National Middle School Association believes
that successful schools for young adolescents
provide the following
  • Curriculum that is relevant, challenging,
    integrative, and exploratory
  • Multiple learning and teaching approaches that
    respond to their diversity.
  • Assessment and evaluation programs that support
    quality learning.

7
Relevant
  • Curriculum is relevant when it allows students
    to pursue answers to questions they have about
    themselves, content and the world. . Student
    generated questions may lead to more demanding
    study, particularly when the prescribed
    curriculum is too often preoccupied with answers
    to questions young adolescents never ask.

8
Challenging
  • Using their good judgment in consultation with
    students, teachers select ideas for in-depth
    study from the vast range of information and
    materials that are genuinely important and worth
    knowing. .Both the content and methods must be
    diversified and individualized.

9
Integrative
  • Curriculum is integrative when it helps students
    to make sense of their lives and the world around
    them and when students learn how to make
    significant, meaningful decisions about their
    learning. .Middle level schools must provide
    experiences, courses and units that are
    specifically designed to be integrative for that
    is how young adolescents learn best.

10
Exploratory
  • The Middle School is a finding place.
    Exploration is an attitude and an approach, not a
    classification of content.

Differentiated Instruction in the Classroom
  • Many strategies we use in the classroom are
    elements of differentiated instruction.

22
Strategies
  • Flexible grouping
  • Books on tape
  • Stations
  • Learning or Interest Centers
  • Learning contracts
  • Independent studies
  • Choral reading
  • Open Ended Activities
  • Cooperative learning
  • Multiple intelligence options
  • Learning styles
  • Multi-level lessons
  • Assignment choice
  • Small group instruction
  • Student interest activities

23
What is and isnt Differentiation
  • ISNT
  • -Creating a different lesson for each student
  • -Ensuring each student has an IPP
  • IS
  • -A technique used to create a learning
    environment
  • -Requires a variety of materials, experiences,
    and assessment tools
  • -Focuses on change within the context of a lesson
    or unit that maximums the learning for students

24
Teachers Can Differentiate by
25
When Planning Try to Consider
  • Learning Profile
  • Depicts how a child learns
  • Interests
  • The students area of appeal or curiosity
  • Readiness
  • The students skill development level

26
Sample Lesson Ideas
  • Variety is the Key!!

27
LA Grade 7
  • Responding to Text Novel Study

28
Characterization
  • Simple
  • Write a full description of a character in the
    book and draw a portrait to accompany your
    description
  • Write a complaint letter to the main character of
    the book about one specific action in the story
    you did not agree with
  • More complex
  • Create life-sized models of two characters in the
    book prepare a dialogue between them and act it
    out
  • Read the classifieds and find something the main
    character would like write a paragraph
    explaining why he/she needs the item and
    determine whether or not it is a good buy

The Respiratory System
  • Students given 5 key questions (objectives to be
    met by end of section)
  • Students choose question they would most like to
    answer
  • Group students accordingly
  • Students prepare lesson(s) for and evaluation of
    peers according to their own interests and
    abilities
  • Subject is taught through various strategies
    using a variety of evaluation tools

33
Using Technology for Differentiated Instruction
  • Three things that a teacher can differentiate
    content, process and product.
  • For example, differentiating instruction by
    process may look like some students using a
    traditional print encyclopedia to complete a
    research task in a classroom as some students use
    Internet bookmarks collected by the teacher and
    still other students use a multimedia
    encyclopedia that provides audio support.

34
Webquests
  • WebQuests are a wonderful means of
    differentiating instruction based on interest.
  • A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in
    which some or all of the information that
    learners interact with comes from resources on
    the Internet.
