Special Needs - Differentiation in Action - Secondary

Description

Follow history teacher James Rebbitt, at Whitmore Secondary School, Harrow, as he structures a lesson for a wide range of achievement within the class.

James has pupils with statements of educational need, some with specific learning difficulties and two students on the gifted and talented register, all within the same class.

James shows how he successfully differentiates for the range of achievement within the class during a lesson on the lives of children in the workhouse. He creates scope for the pupils to assess their own levels of competence, and asking questions to determine their levels of understanding.

The pupils also talk about which teaching styles they prefer and reveal their preference for working in mixed achievement groups for peer support.
