Question 2 a) Content: Is the learners learn and the materials or mechanisms through which learning is accomplished. It is what a learner should come to know (facts, understand (concepts and principles, and be able to do (skills) as a result of a given assignment of study (a lesson, learning experience, a unity. Example: If the classroom objective is for all learners to add fractions, some of the learners may learn to add two numbers of mixed fractions, while other may learning to add two numbers of proper fractions. Process: Process describes activities designed to ensure that learners use key skills to make sense out of essential ideas and information. It is the opportunity for learners to make sense of the content. Example: one learner may explore a learning center, while another learner collects information from the web. Product: Product are assessments or demonstrations of what students have come to know, understand, and be able to do as the result of an extended sequence of learning. A product is the learner’s opportunity to show what she has learned throughout a unit. Products are important not only because they represent learner’s extensive understandings and applications, but also because they are the element of curriculum students can most directly own. Example: to demonstrate understanding of fraction concept, one learner may solve a fraction set, while another builds a model. b) Differentiation is as important for advanced learners as it is for struggling learners. An opportunity for multiple representations helps students conceptualize the while, Also helping to develop number sense. 3.1
Differentiation instruction excites the brilliant learners to uncover deeper layers of learning while, Simultaneously structuring curriculum to support lower level learners or leaners with learning disabilities- both identified and unidentified. Differentiation instruction is adapting instruction and assessment in response to differing learner interests, learning preferences, and readiness in order to promote growth in learning.
