Differentiation is no longer a teaching strategy for the ambitious in education. Rather, it’s an expectation for everyone, including the art educator. There are so many ways to meet student needs through a variety of types of differentiation, and it can be fun! Your students will experience success in developmentally appropriate activities, which will increase their engagement in art.
During this course, you will learn to use the appropriate tools to maximize learning for all students: gifted learners, English language learners, special education students, struggling students while acknowledging their unique interests. An important component of this approach is to modify your lessons and assessments. You will conclude the course with a toolkit of applicable strategies for your classroom.
Participants in this class will need a digital or hard copy of the book Differentiated Instruction in Art Education by Heather Fountain (2014). This Davis Publication text can be purchased in hard copy format or digitally via the Davis website.
