Opening Keynote - Rick Wormeli-Differentiated Instruction in World of Standards and Accountability
Keynote - 
Differentiated Instruction in  World of Standards and Accountability
Differentiated instruction is a nice idea, but what happens when it comes to grading students or those high-stakes, standardized tests?

Being sensitive to students' readiness levels and learning styles while holding them accountable for the same standards can be a challenge. What works?
