As one of my personal, professional development goals, I learn about any NEW language within educational practice (pedagogy;) that I hear, so I can translate for myself and my peers. I would appreciate your feedback.
Recently, I learned of a NEW trend in the naming of differentiated learning and differentiated instruction. It seems there may be a NEW term in place. I am hearing about something called the "Umbrella Strategy" in conjuction with the term "Differentiated Instruction". That conjoining of terms may indicate a trend that signals change to a new vocabulary and away from the old.
Does anyone know about the Umbrella Strategy, in relationship to Differentiated Instruction or Learning?
Here are some websites that give a brief overview of Differentiated Instruction:
