Planning Differentiated Instruction
Planning begins with the CARR test – is your curriculum Clear, Accessible, Rigorous, and Relevant for ALL students?

Group Learning Routines
Students often work in small groups to facilitate meeting the needs of all learners. Teachers use small groups to gather formative assessment data, for peers to help each other through tutoring and offering feedback, and to collaborate as a team to build ideas and products that could not be created alone. Throughout all group learning routines students are practicing their academic vocabulary, presentation skills, and social interaction skills.

The ALL-ED framework is based on the belief that to differentiate instruction, students must be actively recruited in setting goals, monitoring progress, and reflecting on outcomes. We feel it is impossible for teachers to make decisions to differentiate instruction without students taking an active role in self-regulated learning.
