Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive classroom and school environments.
Differentiation is a way of teaching; it’s not a program or package of worksheets. It asks teachers to know their students well so they can provide each one with experiences and tasks that will improve learning. As Carol Ann Tomlinson has said, differentiation means giving students multiple options for taking in information (1999). Differentiating instruction means that you observe and understand the differences and similarities among students and use this information to plan instruction.
