Differentiating Instruction

The success of RtI depends in large part on the teacher's commitment to differentiating instruction in small groups.   We can often get caught up in teaching whole group, thinking it saves time.  However, consider that whole-group teaching is the LEAST effective method of instruction for ALL learners.  Think about yourself as a learner. When learning something new, such as a new computer program, a new language or the stock market, sitting one on one with someone who can adjust their teaching to your understanding and give immediate feedback is going to be much more effective.  Below are a few resources about differentiating instruction.  As I come across more information, I will add to this post. :)
