Welcome to Differentiation Daily!

October 24, 2010

If you are interested in differentiation, active & responsive instruction, and inclusive schooling, you have come to the right spot. Every day, I will feature a link to an idea found on the web or to an entire website that will help educators reach and teach all of the learners in their diverse classrooms.

The first link I am featuring is the blog that inspired me to start this site: Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day.

Larry’s site is focused on ESL, EFL, & ELL teaching but his blog is really helpful for all educators. He features sites on literacy, technology, math, and on world politics and culture to name a few. I have used this site to broaden my knowledge of technology use in classrooms and to learn about the intersections between teaching ELL, creating curricular adaptations, and providing enrichment.

    Hi Paula!
    You are doing a great job here! I have read your books with great interest and indeed they are very well written and also practical! They help greatly in the inclusion of my son who is on the ASD spectrum into his secondary school. Our younger daughter has a lable of Asperger and she is in primary school.

    Keep on with your great job!

    Best wishes,
    Simon

    There aren’t much good research, resources and support in Hong Kong. The conception about special needs is very obsolete here and the government assessment centres still give label such as “mentally retarded”. The idea of inclusion is kind of being seen as “integration”. Many parents and educators have to look out for alternative thinkings and good resources. Thanks again for your great work which also benefits parents and teachers on this side of the globe! Simon
