How can differentiation be implemented in large classes?
Here are some useful tips:
Traditionally, tasks are completed in a set amount of time, which normally accommodates the slower-paced learners. This can mean faster learners are held up by the pace of their peers, and slower workers feel rushed and incapable of learning at the necessary pace.
Group work is excellent for empowering shyer students to participate more in class. Forming mixed-ability groups of pupils gives high achievers a platform to vocalise their ideas, and lower ability students a way ofcollaborating with peers.
By using interactive tools and digital applications, mixed-ability classes get the opportunity to approach a topic or subject from different angles.
Rather than setting a task with a single outcome or ‘right’ answer, taking a more interpretive approach to an exercise gives students the flexibility to arrive at a more personalised result.
