Differentiation is an essential lens and tool-set for effective instructional practices. Differentiation is not some abstract concept, strategies for an “ideal classroom”, or can only be accomplished if given enough resources.
So All Can Learn provides practical steps, tied to pedagogy, for how every teacher does differentiation, and how they can elevate their practice. Differentiation has many layers from simple practices to complex structures of implementation. Similar to a gamer who levels up or a martial artist earning belts, dedication to practice and reflection on efforts is how mastery of Differentiation happens.
The target age groups is ALL students. Learners needs are important from young children to adults. While the stories exemplified in the book ranges from young children to teens, the practical steps and pedagogy addressed are applicable for all ages of learners. Making connections, using assessments, providing personalized experiences is a need for any teacher who has students under their care.
