Are you avoiding “learning styles” because of the research that teaching to them doesn’t improve student
outcomes? Yet you know that students have different learning needs because of interests, past experiences,
culture, gender, and more. Welcome to a different, brain-based framework for ensuring no students are
constantly at a disadvantage, while at the same time providing a common language for peer coaching. The 12
core doable differentiation strategies let educators adjust the way you’d prefer to teach content to ensure
that all students are successful, thriving, engaged, agile, and maturing.


This is a learn-by-doing session; through professional development activities, participants experience
strategies teachers can use immediately. All students need to master core content and processes, develop
agility with hands-on tasks such as science labs, work independently and creatively, and solve problems
collaboratively. Students need scaffolding to successfully engage in all of these content-driven learning modes, no
matter their hard-wired strengths. Incorporating the 12 strategies and providing the scaffolding is the essence of
doable differentiation.


Participants will...

  • Identify their own core cognitive process, and how it influences their approach to education 
  • Experience differentiation strategies that engage and scaffold students to develop agility and success via all four

      cognitive processes

  • Explore how to use a simple two-step differentiation process to quickly and easily reach more students as well as to plan full lessons


Who should attend

  • District and Building Instructional Leaders
  • Instructional Coaches
  • Teachers
  • Intervention Specialists
