Course Description:

Welcome to Try DI!:  Planning & Preparing a Differentiated Instruction Program, an interactive computer-based instruction course.  This course is designed to provide you an opportunity to learn about an instructional framework, Differentiated Instruction (DI), aimed at creating supportive learning environments for diverse learning populations.  Students will be presented a method for self-assessment of the extent to which their current instructional approach reflects the perspective, principles, and practices of the DI approach.  The course reflects an approach that aligns the principles of DI with the practices of DI.  The concept of a "theory of action" will also be provided within a DI context.  The course has also been designed to introduce students to a range of strategies with a DI approach.  Strategies included in this course have been selected on the basis that they are effective in the widest possible range of educational K-12 settings.  This course follows Why DI!:  An Introduction to Differentiated Instruction, which addressed the What, Why and Who of a classroom that reflects a DI approach.  The focus of Try DI!:  Planning & Preparing a Differentiated Instruction Program is on the When, Where and How of the approach.
