100 Union Educators to Benefit From $14K Commonweal Grant

Story by Taashi Rowe
Published 4/3/13

The Columbia Union Conference Board of Education recently received a $14,000 grant from the Commonweal Foundation to fund the three-day “Differentiated Instruction for the 21st Century” workshop. Some 100 instructional leaders (superintendents, associate superintendents, principals/teachers) at union schools will be able to take advantage of the training. According to Donovan Ross, an associate director in the union’s Office of Education, the training kick-starts a recent board of education approval of “a four- to -five-year plan to place a sustained, deliberate, union-wide emphasis on differentiated instruction.”
The term ‘Differentiated Instruction’ has become somewhat of a buzzword over the last few years as it recognizes that each student learns differently and emphasizes that teachers multiple tools to reflect varied learning styles. The training takes place at the union office in Columbia, Md., June 11-13.
