What Differentiation Is, And What It Isn’t… [INFOGRAPHIC]


For all the talk about differentiating instruction over the years, there are still so many different interpretations of what it looks like in the classroom, when the truth is there are very clear parameters for DI that bear themselves out in the research literature.

Consider the definition of differentiation, what it is and what it is not, provided in this ASCD infographic from the new second edition of Carol Ann Tomlinson’s highly acclaimed “The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners” (ASCD, 2014). 

Post it where you work, share it with colleagues, and circulate it online to help everyone keep clear understanding of best practices for differentiating instruction in mind!

    Hello, My name is Natasha Banchik and I am a grad student at UCSD finishing up my final colloquium about classroom practices. The picture on your blog inspires me and I was wondering if I had your permission to use it for my colloquium video. This video will be posted on YouTube and you will get credit for the picture if I am allowed to use it.
