Split Screen is a form of flexible grouping that provides those who can with the next step and those who need more instruction with another learning opportunity. This practical learning experience combines videos of teachers sharing their own applications with other teacher-created examples and is designed specifically for K-5 educators who want to promote focus and motivation. TLS has worked with thousands of educators helping them translate their effective practice to Differentiated Instruction (DI). ‘Teacher of teachers’, Dr. Pete Grande and TLS team provide you with everything you need for a meaningful, valuable and doable learning experience.
DI is a framework for instruction that clarifies curricular objectives, uses ongoing formative assessment to engage learners at the correct level of difficulty, and establishes an environment conducive to the advancement of academic growth. Split Screen is part of the TLS Making DI Doable series of 12 DI strategy offerings. Take them all!
