103: Differentiated Instruction and Responsive Teaching

This discovery course teaches a  framework to help educators differentiate instruction in mixed-ability classrooms. This webinar integrates positive psychology, social psychology, and cognitive learning skills with fundamental teaching strategies to help vulnerable and reluctant learners.



A Responsive Approach to Differentiating Instruction in Mixed-Ability Classrooms.

Students have learning differences that impact instructional design and delivery.  A responsive teaching approach blends whole class, small group, and individualized instruction into one classroom approach.  In this webinar, Mockingbird will introduce the Mockingbird Responsive Instructional Model for differentiated instruction.  Learn the 8 elements of differentiation that master educators engage to responsively meet diverse needs in mixed-ability classrooms.  Learn the four types of differentiation, how to organically blend whole group and individual activities to maximize effectiveness and how to use sidebar anchors and instructional transition strategies to  maximize on-task learning.  Learn the strategies that allow educators to be both responsive and proactive in their differentiated response.  

Strategies presented in webinar are research-based strategies from the Mockingbird Methodology.  Our Methodology targets the art and science of teaching vulnerable learners and teaches an instructional framework for creating active, visible, psychologically safe, and socially non-threatening classrooms.
