Here is a great article from the website teachthought about differentiated instruction (DI). The article doesn’t only explain what DI is, but also offers great visual cues to understand the concept better. Thanks to its simplicity this article really helped me to fully grasp the concept and I think that is what makes it so valuable. But the simplicity is also the downside of the article, because it just provides overall ideas about DI, but no detailed ways of how to actually implement DI in your classroom.
The website teachthought, on which this article was posted offers many other great articles about innovative teaching in the 21st century. teachthought was founded by a former classroom teacher that wanted to rethink traditional approaches to teaching and learning.
