Chapters 4-5 (Respond by Nov. 23) 28
Discussion Question Ch. 4-5 – The author proposes that believing in the capacity of students means having high expectations for all and providing lots of "ladders" to help everyone climb to new levels of success. In what ways do you agree or disagree with this assertion? How do your beliefs about this topic influence your practice?
Chapters 1-3 (Respond by Oct. 19) 28
Discussion Question – Beginning on page 27, the author focuses on several key elements of the philosophy that governs differentiation: diversity is normal and valuable; every child has hidden and extensive capacity to learn; it's the teacher's job to be the engineer of student success; and educators should be the champions of every student who enters the schoolhouse door. In your experience, how does the presence of these beliefs shape schools and classrooms? What about the absence of these beliefs?
