Differentiated Instruction

College writing instructors don't typically use the term "differentiated instruction" (nor do most professors outside of schools of education), but the need for it is increasing as developmental reading and writing courses disappear and students with an even wider range of abilities enroll directly in FYC.  Here's some interesting advice for differentiating instruction, some of which can apply to post-secondary courses as well as K-12: http://www.edutopia.org/article/differentiated-instruction-resources

 

It would be great if I could find a collection of resources and strategies aimed at college writing courses and students, but so far no luck.  I'll keep digging, though!

I've used the term in workshops for faculty -- see http://teachnet.blogspot.com/2014/02/differentiated-teaching-in-first-year.html for example -- but yes, I think a focused discussion and set of resources would be a good idea.

I didn't even realize you had put this together.  Very useful.
