All classrooms in the School feature activities that ensure students have meaningful access to the content being taught. We wish to celebrate the individuality of each person and all that he or she can bring to our learning community. Teachers at Kilvington take into account whom they are teaching as well as what they are teaching, and our classroom goals are to plan actively and consistently to help students move along the learning continuum.
Differentiated instruction is widely used at Kilvington. The teachers work conscientiously to know and understand the students as individuals and to be flexible in matching teaching styles and methods to student needs.
In any classroom in the School, there are activities that ensure students have meaningful access to the content being taught. Visual/graphics organisers, group work, role plays, oral presentations, class materials presented in text, visual and auditory form, and ICT are commonly used by Kilvington's teachers so that differing learning styles and individual student interests are taken into account. Students are also often offered choice in the types of tasks and activities they undertake.
Classroom environments, both in operation and tone, balance the rigour of school work with flexibility, engagement and celebration of success. The operation of our classrooms enables students and teachers to share responsibility so that the environment maximises learning for each member.
Teachers are constantly assessing each student's readiness, interest and learning profile to modify content, process, product and the learning environment. This responsive teaching is the key to differentiated learning.
