Differentiating Curriculum

Curriculum can be differentiated in a variety of ways.  

This may include: 

  • drawing from learning area content at different levels  (for example, some Year 4 students will be able to plan and conduct a specific chance and data investigation making decisions about questions and data representation, while others may take part in the same investigation but at a less complex level by exploring set questions)

  • drawing from and emphasising specific aspects of one or more of the general capabilities to adjust the learning focus in a particular learning area (for example, teaching targeted numeracy skills, ethical understanding or critical and creative thinking through a science lesson)

  • drawing from and emphasising specific aspects of one or more of the cross-curriculum priorities to adjust the learning focus of a particular learning area (for example,  examining historical perspectives from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander viewpoint)

  • aligning individual learning goals with learning area content (for example, incorporating communication goals into a problem-solving task in a maths lesson).
