Classroom & Special Ed Teachers Secondary - 29 May 2017

Differentiation in the 'Real World': Effective Planning and Teaching for Diverse Primary Students
Dr Jane Jarvis, Senior Lecturer, Flinders University

Jane has worked as a school counsellor, teacher, behaviour intervention specialist, and educational consultant in gifted education, special education, and disability services in Australia and the United States. Jane currently teaches in the areas of differentiation and gifted education to pre-service teachers and postgraduate students. She works with schools across Australia on differentiating curriculum and instruction to meet the needs of diverse learners.


The workshop will explore how to enrich learning experiences for all secondary school children, including those who have a disability, developmental delay and those who are experiencing difficulties in learning. It is interactive with a practical focus and will include:

  • Developing an understanding of what it really means to differentiate effectively to address student diversity in mainstream secondary classrooms with competing demands
  • Understanding differentiation as an overall approach to teaching and learning, that is grounded in a set of core, underlying principles
  • Identifying differentiation strategies and practices that are evidence-informed, and that move beyond fun activities that do little to enhance student learning
  • Building a repertoire of both “low-prep” and “high-prep” strategies for differentiation over time
  • Considering approaches to grouping, assessment and classroom leadership and management that create a learning environment likely to support effective differentiation
  • Reflecting on the development of professional skills and competencies related to differentiation along a continuum of expertise, in line with the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
