Differentiated By Design

A Collection of Practical Ideas for Educators Making A Conscious Decision to Differentiate

Differentiated By Design

What is the purpose of this resource?

When we learn, we do so through the integration and application of a multitude of learning strengths. Dominance in one or two intelligences does not nullify our ability to nurture and develop strength in other areas. Our primary motivation for creating this resource lies in our belief that a classroom which is differentiated by design consciously creates opportunities for student empowerment and growth through the exploration of all intelligences.
