PLC Big Idea #1
Focus on Learning
We accept high levels of learning for
all students as the fundamental
purpose of our school and therefore
are willing to examine all practices
in light of their impact on learning.
Excellence for All
To have a mission of learning for all
 You must believe all students
can learn at high levels
 You must take responsibility to
ensure that all students learn.

Definition of Differentiated Instruction
Differentiated Instruction (DI) is an approach that
empowers both teachers and students to maximize
learning for all by providing multiple pathways for
students to take in information, make sense of
ideas, and express what they have learned.
Carefully crafted instruction responds to individual
profiles, interests and readiness by modifying
content, process and products.
 Through DI, teachers take into account who they
teach, what they teach, where they teach and how
they teach.
The basic premise of DI is that students are different.
Teachers of effective heterogeneous classrooms
recognize the similarities and differences in students
and proactively plan for these differences.
