2022 GROW 8 - Differentiation: Meeting students' learning needs
Course Duration
7 month programme
Date/Time

30 March - 27 September 2022

Overview

This GROW programme is available to any teacher at primary and secondary schools wishing to learn about differentiation and how to apply it in a language classroom. New and experienced differentiators welcome. 

Teachers will explore the 4 main approaches to differentiation – content, process, product, learning environment described and promoted by Carol Tomlinson. 
Using an appreciative inquiry stance focusing on each teacher’s strengths, this Grow will challenge teachers to check if what you are delivering is fit for purpose. 

Teachers will gain the following benefits:

  • Reflect critically on how students learn best
  • Understand the rationale for differentiation 
  • Create a ‘differentiated’ resource 
  • Track your impact on students’ learning
  • Sharing and learning from the wisdom of others
