Differentiating instruction to meet the needs of all learners creates a classroom that is engaging, successful, and full of activity. Students differ academically, culturally, and learn differently. This interactive workshop will demonstrate ways to adjust the curriculum, capture student’s interest, and create opportunities for all learners to be successful at their academic level.
