Differentiating the Environment
Differentiated classrooms value learners – respecting differences, nurturing the uniqueness of individuals’ backgrounds, experiences, interests, readiness and learning preferences. One of the critical aspects of differentiated instruction is the environment that nourishes learners, creating conditions that enable them to flourish and accomplish great things. Student differences are the basis for planning and instruction. Spaces and places take on importance, where consideration is given to the practicalities of instructional groupings and arrangements. The intentional development of positive attitudes, dispositions and practices leads to a sense of emotional safety and belonging – crucial in a healthy community of learners. What guides the differentiation of the classroom environment and how it can be achieved is the focus of this Learning Space which also includes opportunities for application to your own classroom practice.
