I remember years ago, when I first heard the term differentiated, it completely overwhelmed me!

How am I supposed to differentiate writing tasks for a class of 25 students?

Why does differentiation even look like?

Fast forward 5 years and differentiation is part and parcel of my teaching and learning program.

The best bit is, it’s not this big overwhelming thing at all.

It can be streamline and seamless!

So what exactly is differentiation?

In simplistic terms, it can be viewed as individualized learning where teaching is tailored to meet the specific

needs of each student, so that child is challenged at an appropriate level.

When students are given writing prompts that align with their interests, background, or abilities, they are more

likely  to be engaged in the writing task and strive for personal best to produce quality of work.

This in turn is a confidence booster because students are provided with work that aligns with their abilities,

which results in a sense of achievement and experiencing success.
