Questions to think about:
Q1: What forms of differentiation do you use most often and why?
- Differentiation of: content, product, process, affect,
- Differentiation by: readiness, interest, learning profile
Q2: How do you cater for students who excel beyond the descriptors of the rubric? How to keep them engaged when they have already achieved top scores?
Q3: If you modify programmes or assessments for students, how does the school provide for them once they reach IBDP? Do they join IBDP or alternatives available?
Q4: What tools, including tech, do you find useful in implementing differentiation?
