Rolling Out The D.I. Barrel
Our informal sharing includes details of how we have “rolled out the D.I. barrel” and satisfied the objectives of the DI Professional Learning Strategy- how we have:

  • increased instructional knowledge and skills of educators of grades 7-12 so that they can meet the diverse needs of all students
  • built an awareness of D.I. as a framework for planning and implementing effective instruction, assessment and evaluation practices as outlined in the Ontario curriculum

Connecting the Dots
In this session, we share our DI RAFT and DI Professional Learning Cycle (PLC) plans highlighting how we are using the DI Professional Learning Strategy (teacher resources/ funding) to support teacher collaborative inquiry, the creation of inclusive, technology- friendly learning environments, higher order thinking, and the integration of arts-infused learning to engage all students in cross-curriculum literacy learning.
