Differentiation is all well and good in theory, but when it comes to making it a day-to-day reality, the task can seem daunting: How do I keep students on task while I am working with a small group? How do I organize all those different resources students will need? And how do I manage my own time in order to design and assess different assignments? This course will address the practical "nuts and bolts" of management in a differentiated classroom. We'll view and analyze examples of management in differentiated classrooms, explore numerous strategies, and work with our own management styles to design a plan for managing our differentiated classrooms while staying sane and keeping our students on task.
