Differentiated instruction is effective.

Experienced teachers, well aware of how greatly students may vary in readiness, interest, and learning style, work to adjust teaching techniques to the needs of subgroups of students. This is differentiated instruction. Differentiated Instruction is an effective way to ensure that all students succeed in your classroom.

The Learning Styles Key below will help students identify the types of tasks they most enjoy: the learning activities most likely to lead to success. The World Studies, US History and Civics lessons available on funlessonplans.com all present lesson objectives through differentiated instructional projects and activities.

Many of the lesson projects and learning activities can be completed in a single class period. For instance, the drama activities do not need fancy costumes, memorized scripts, or elaborate props or scenery. Not all written work, such as a letter or journal entry, needs be in finished, publishable form, and such artwork as brochures, illustrations, and cartoons can be quick sketches presented to small groups, all within a single class period. These learning activities are designed to help students focus on the learning process rather than the product. Of course, teachers who wish to use projects as larger, summative assessment experiences certainly may do so and will find that students can easily demonstrate their learning through these vehicles.
