This is the first online Master of Education program to combine the ideas of Drs. Carol Tomlinson and William Glasser into a comprehensive course of study to help teachers meet the needs of an increasingly diverse student population.
Dr. Tomlinson, who is featured in the videos for this degree, is the author of numerous books and articles on differentiated instruction and is currently professor of education at the University of Virginia. Dr. Tomlinson also spent 21 years as a classroom teacher creating differentiated programs for both struggling and advanced learners.
Differentiated instruction and assessment strategies covered in the master's program include: pre-assessment of learning styles and preferences, modifying lessons based on student readiness, tiered instruction, flexible grouping, and authentic assessment.
