'Differentiation is a way of thinking about the classroom with dual goals of honouring each student's learning needs and maximising each student's learning capacity.' (Tomlinson & Strickland 2003)
To achieve a high level of engagement and maximising learning outcomes in Languages Education classes teachers need to cater for diversity.
This hands-on workshop will show teachers how to create units of work for the year 5-10 students that present a flexible structure, are outcome based and involve active learning. 
During the workshop, teachers will learn how to differentiate classroom activities and tasks to suit individual students by adopting different strategies, which include the use of complex task systems based on the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy, Gardner's Intelligences, Tony Ryan's Keys, and more.
