My proposal for EDEL 590 is to investigate the impact of differentiated instruction focusing on teaching thinking skills. My research will include an intense study of literature available on thinking skills, differentiation and the impact of implementing explicit and infused instruction of thinking skills to accelerate the mastering of content. My final product will be a proposed middle school initiative encompassing thinking skills as the core of differentiated instruction to enhance acceleration of learning for mastery of content for all students.
