Using components of responsive classroom to positively impact differentiated math instruction in a primary classroom
The research question addressed in this project was how do elements of Responsive Classroom positively impact differentiated math instruction in a primary classroom? This project illustrated the creation of a primary time unit that differentiates activities based on students' readiness level, interest, and their learning profile. It integrated the following research influences: differentiation, Responsive Classroom, Multiple Intelligences, and child development. The ten components of Responsive Classroom are researched extensively to create a foundation for a positive classroom environment. Using Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences help to create a differentiated unit. Qualitative Research is described as it validates the research done in this project. The author explains in detail the Backwards Design model which provides the framework for the unit. Finally she reflects on the research conducted, how the capstone will be shared and future research that could be done.
