Gain confidence in reaching the diverse learners in your art room through proven practices, creative tools, and engaging strategies.
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 many ways to meet student needs through various differentiation strategies and tools. Learning how to help students experience success with developmentally appropriate activities will, in turn, help to increase their engagement in art.
During this course, participants will use the appropriate tools to maximize learning for all students: gifted learners, English language learners (ELL), special education students, and struggling students while acknowledging their unique interests. An important component of this approach is for participants to reflect on their current practices through the modification of lesson plans and assessments and creating new tools for their art room. At the completion of this course, participants will have a toolkit of applicable differentiation strategies for the classroom.

"Reaching All Artists Through Differentiation is completely relevant and I already started implementing differentiation strategies into my current teaching practice. I also have already used some of the instructional tools/ideas I created for assignments in my classroom. This course helped open up my mind to how I could be more accommodating to all students and be more open-minded about gradually implementing more choice."
"Incredible course! I appreciated the video feedback in response to the assignment. That was so encouraging. It was a great course and I learn so much about differentiation! I loved all the content that was covered and how it is applicable to my classroom."
