Around the province, I have been fortunate to work with a variety of teachers, educational assistants, teacher candidates, and school teams! Over time, we have started to collect examples of differentiated unit plans with varying subject and grade levels. The best part, however is the EVERY SINGLE example includes a learners with a developmental disability. So, together with a collection of brilliant educators, there will be a new link on this blog called “Differentiated Unit Plan examples” to look at, which provide real life classes and scenarios of how schools have made the curriculum both accessible AND challenging to meet the needs of their diverse students.
These examples are built from the “Curriculum for ALL” facilitated collaborative professional development series, and is based on frameworks wring together which include: Class Profiles/Reviews, Response to Intervention, the Planning Pyramid, Universal Design for Learning along with many others.
This is a BIG shout out to the generous teams who have agreed to share their examples. Please note, that student names have been replaced with pseudonyms to protect privacy.
