Topic 2: differentiating literacy instruction
The ability to look at the unique needs of students and identify and plan differentiated instructional activities for small groups of students with similar literacy deficits is critical to student mastery of literacy skills. Through differentiating the content mastery level, the process for delivering instruction, and the product students create to demonstrate mastery of the content, students with diverse needs can experience classroom success in literacy.
