Abstract

The research question addressed in this project was, how can stations and technology be incorporated into a middle school science curriculum? It documents one teacher's creation of a differentiated lesson series that focuses individualizing student learning based on student background, readiness level, and individual strengths. It integrated stations and technology to differentiate process and content to reach common learning objectives among a diverse student population. This is based on Tomlinson's research into differentiation methods. The author of this capstone documents the details of the lesson series and uses related research literature to construct a case for the need of differentiation. She describes two main facets: 1) Strategies for getting to know your learners and 2) Detailed lesson plans incorporating various differentiation strategies for process leading to common content objectives.
