Inclusive Education and Differentiated Instructional Practices To Make It Happen

There is an immediate need to transform curriculum to prepare students for living and working in today’s world – but how? With my knowledge, expertise and commitment, I can help you to make these necessary changes successful.Differentiated Instruction remains a priority. Many schools provide 2 – 3 day workshops to train teachers in differentiated instruction, but what happens after the consultant leaves? I partner with schools over an extended period to ensure differentiated instruction is implemented as part of daily practice in the classroom.

Making Questions Matter

Learn how to provoke student inquiry. Learn how to design, develop and integrate ‘higher order, Socratic questioning strategies’ to make for powerful learning – at ANY grade level.

    The First Few Days, “Laura Malbogat arrived in Memphis on Sunday to help us kick off our new Curriculum21 initiative. Our project began its official launch in a three hour session in which Laura introduced herself to our faculty, masterfully, set their minds at ease by insisting that we’d ‘go slow’ and that each staff member would get individualized attention aimed at nurturing their growth as a 21st century educator at their own rate and from wherever it was they were starting.”
