This course provides an advanced look at the theory, design, and implementation of differentiated curriculum. Strategies and tools for responsive teaching are researched, used, and reflected upon. Technology is used as a major vehicle to differentiate content, process and product. Candidates will interact with district student information systems, research information literacy and Web 2.0 tools, utilize graphic organizer software, and presentation products. They will create and design a differentiated mini-unit, enhanced by technology and an interactive webquest or website. Projects are field-based, inquiry-oriented and require significant reflection on the effectiveness of both the process and product. National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and ISTE Standards are aligned in this course with learning objectives as well as with the rubric for the mini-unit, the summative project.
