The course is designed to provide a general introduction to these areas, focusing on issues of particular concern to middle and secondary school teachers, from which you will begin to consider how to differentiate your instruction for a diverse population of students. In turn, the course design is intended to help you create the kinds of classrooms our students deserve, using methods to deliver instruction that are aligned to the needs of these learners.
