Differentiation in K12 Classrooms - Let's Try ALEM!

In the late 80’s, I was fortunate to be in an adapted ALEM classroom. The Adaptive Learning Environments Model, created by Dr. Margaret Wang, was designed to support students with special needs who were being mainstreamed into the classroom with “regular education” students. The design offered the chance for students to learn at their own rates, and teachers to be able to provide support to all students as needed. While independent feedback on the success of this model didn’t always glow with respect to the progress of students who were mainstreamed, I saw great impact with students in a variety of ways.
