Thank you for embarking on this journey. This course falls under the category Classroom Instruction. Getting Ready to Differentiate is a Level 2 course. Through this course, we will learn what differentiation is, why it is an important method of teaching to ensure ALL children in your class is learning and how to be prepared to execute it in the classroom.
