Differentiation Academy

This introductory-level two-day course will focus on the four core elements of differentiation: content, process, product, and learning environment. Participants will show evidence of their depth of understanding of the foundations of differentiated instruction by developing a differentiated lesson plan. Face-to-face courses scheduled during the 2017 - 2018 school year are listed below.

Limited substitute funding is available for the sections listed below on a first-come, first-served basis. Substitute funding instructions for each section are listed in MyTalent.

Support Sessions for Differentiated Instruction

These one-day support sessions are designed for teachers who previously attended the Differentiation Academy (either face-to-face or online) or other similar differentiated instruction professional development and would like additional support as they implement differentiated instruction for their students.

We regret that we are unable to offer substitute funding for support sessions this year. However, if you are a state-funded National Board initial candidate who qualifies for the three substitute days, you may choose to use one of your substitute days to attend a support session and plan differentiated instruction for your National Board component(s). Contact Linda Yarbrough at for more information.
