In response to James Delisle's criticism of differentiation in Education Week, Edudemic revisits two important questions pertaining to this issue: "Does differentiation work for students? And is there any way that teachers can implement it while maintaining their sanity?"
ThinkCERCA founder and CEO Eileen Murphy shares her perspective on the topic as both a teacher and former director of curriculum and instruction for Chicago Public Schools. A big supporter of differentiated learning, Eileen discusses research-backed data that shows "struggling students often fare worse when separated from peers" in addition to ways teachers and schools can effectively implement it in classrooms.
