Tse, S.K. (2014). Catering for learners' diversity: The design and application of differentiated curriculum and teaching materials [Presentation]. In The 2014 International Conference on When East Meets West: The Teaching and Learning of Reading and Writing in the Multingual and Multicultural Context. Hong Kong: The University of Hong Kong.
This presentation reports innovative teaching strategies to cater for learners with markedly different language levels in the same classroom,, and discusses ways of delivering the curriculum to classes
containing both local and immigrant children with different family and cultural backgrounds. Discussion focuses on a number of intervention strategies, providing differentiated learning objectives, differentiated curriculum , and differentiated instructional materials to cater for individual differences. Thus linguistically disadvantaged students can study together with other local students in one classroom instead of pulling them out to form a special class.
