Title III- Report from ODE
Differentiation means
starting where the kids are!
- Carol Ann Tomlinson
When thinking differently about learners, consider …
• Readiness
• Information, concepts, and skills students demonstrate at entry point of
learning experience
• Interests
• Topics, problems, and processes of personal relevance to students (passion
learning)
• Learning Profile
• Combination of students’ emotions, cultures, modality preferences, and
intelligences that affect learning
Indicators of Differentiation
• Consistent use of pretesting
• Decrease in the frequency of large group activities
• Increase in
• Small group teaching activities
• Flexible small group learning activities
• Increase in individual alternatives:
• Centers
• Homework
• Contracts

characteristics and their disabilities
a. May include
i. Sheltered academic instruction

iii. Task scaffolds – reduce the information students must
generate independently
iv. Material scaffolds – learning prompts
v. Comprehensible input – language appropriate to the
student’s English language proficiency
