START Coaching Focus Group Differentiated Output Hierarchy
Date: Jan 22
Time: 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM
Location: Bay-Arenac ISD
Calendar: Professional Development

The differentiated output hierarchy is a systematic, organized approach to support student"s active engagement in the general education curriculum. The differentiated output hierarchy supports the concepts defined in differentiated instruction. Differentiated instruction is defined as the planning of curriculum and instruction using strategies that address student strengths, interests, skills, and readiness in flexible learning environments. "At its Core... Differentiation is simply high-quality, thoughtful teaching that builds on our best understanding of how students learn and what teachers can do to maximize each student"s learning" (The Common Sense of Differentiation, 2005). Tomlinson (2000) suggests that differentiated instruction is a way of thinking about teaching and learning.

Many students who receive special education supports and services struggle with reading comprehension, written language, organization skills, etc. The hierarchy provides a framework to allow students to show what they know even with these deficits.

Designed and facilitated by West Michigan teachers and social studies consultants under the guidance of Dr. Phil Gersmehl, this 4-part series examines the connections between spatial (geographic) thinking and its integration with the disciplines of history, civics, and economics through the context of Michigan studies. Comprehensive curricular units that include research-based instructional strategies for teaching spatial thinking through the Arc of Inquiry, hands-on activities, literacy strategies, and best practices in both formative and summative assessment will be modeled at each session.  As a result of the incorporation of disciplinary-specific, critical thinking skills brought about by the design of The C3 Framework, this curriculum and accompanying professional development network are the best tools to assist 3rd-grade social studies teachers in developing inquiry-based instructional units.
