Differentiated Instruction

As  I said in an earlier post, I am working on a class dealing with Differentiated Instruction.  Whether you've heard of it or not, it has become a mammoth task to develop a class on it in the sense that there is a great amount of information out there and I have had a hard time tackling it.  I can't use everything out there, but I am trying to sift through and find the most informative and useful information.

I decided to post links to a few sites and articles I have found along the way.  Keep in mind, much of what is discussed are items we learned in college as educators - multiple intelligences, learning styles, etc....  None of this is really new.  However, I have found many recent articles on these topics as well as new articles on brain-based learning.  For starters, here is a video interview on learning with Sir Ken Robinson. Hopefully these are useful to some of you.
