Key Principles of Effective Differentiation . Analyze the five key principles of effective differentiation and discuss which of the five will be the most difficult for you to embrace with a ―fluid or ―growth mindset.‖ What are the obstacles you see that will inhibit implementing the principles in your current or future educational setting? Which of the five is the easiest to accept? Why?
Guided Response: Review at least two of your classmates’ postings and suggest ways that may help them change their fixed mindset about the principle that is difficult for them to embrace. Share examples from your own educational experience that address any of the five principles.
Educational Neuroscience . Educational neuroscience is an exciting new discipline that brings together research from psychology, neuroscience and pedagogy to help educators make the best curriculum, instructional and assessment choices for effective learning. Locate an article in the Ashford Online Library that investigates findings from cognitive and neuroscientific research. Provide a brief summary of the article and explain how the findings could be translated into what educators do in schools and classrooms. Do the findings support differentiated teaching and learning? Why or why not?
Brain Research Supports Differentiation . In a three- to five-page paper (not including title and reference pages):
a. Analyze how neuroscientific research findings and recent discoveries regarding how the brain learns support differentiation in the classroom.
b. Discuss how insights into the learning process affirm the importance of differentiation.
c. Explain how the research findings can be translated into specific teaching strategies used in the classroom.
Your paper must include title and reference pages, include at least two scholarly resources (in addition to the course text), and be formatted according to APA style guidelines as outlined in your approved APA style guide or the Ashford Writing Center.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric located in the online course for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
Fluid and Fixed Mindsets . Souza and Tomlinson (2011) explain, "Mindsets are the assumptions, expectations, and beliefs that guide our behavior and our interaction with others"(p. 19). A teacher's mindset is of utmost importance in the differentiated classroom. Think about your least favorite teacher and consider what their mindset must have been. Share how you felt in the class and how the teacher's mindset affected your own well-being and academic success as a student. How did this teacher’s mindset affect his or her teaching? What advice would you give this teacher to help change his or her mindset? Or , think of your own mindset and how it affects the students in your classroom. Do you have a fixed or fluid mindset? Are there areas where you need to improve or change your mindset? What specific strategies can you implement to make your teaching more effective?
