First Person What do you find to be the biggest obstacle to effectively differentiating instruction? Got your answer? Was it “time?” If so, your reply mirrors the most common response I receive from the teachers I coach on differentiation.
Time management has to be one of the most difficult tasks for students (and adults) to master. There are so many things to do and keep track of each day! When we are helping our students become expert learners, we need to help them develop important self-regulation skills, like sustaining effort, managing time, and even breaks.
