Pursuing Novel Teaching Methods with Differentiated Education Grant Moneyfrom:
Teachers and school professionals are beginning to realize the value of breaking away from traditional teaching methods which consisted of a pre-packaged lecture and assignments that ignored studentsí individuality.
Indeed, more and more research results are pointing to the fact that each individual student has his or her own learning style and using the same blanket teaching approach for all students can actually be detrimental to many children.
Differentiated education is one way of counteracting that unproductive method. This method allows students to learn the way they learn best and at different levels. For example, some students can learn grammar skills by simply being shown examples in a workbook, while others will read a story and try to pick out parts of speech. When it comes time for assessment, students are treated differently as well; in order to show that students have learned a particular geometrical concept, for example, one student might be asked to solve a problem, while another student may be asked to build a model.
In order to implement differentiated education programs and have the materials necessary to address all learning styles, schools can request differentiated education grant money.
As with other grants the institution seeking grant money must demonstrate in a proposal why the money is needed and how the money will be put towards furthering the goals of the differentiated education grant. Money will be allocated after a close review of proposals, which must give some background information, the purpose of the grant, the need for differentiated education grant money, where the grant will be used and for whom (the target population), the strategies to implement the grant, the personnel employed, methods for evaluating the success of the project, and a budget. Depending on the specific project, then, there may be other, more particular, requirements.
Differentiated education grant money can be donated by the federal or state government, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, research institutions, funding institutions, corporations, or private individuals. Grants.gov is an excellent place to start the search, which is a site listing all Federal grants available ($400 billion are available) as is Ed.gov, the home page of the US Department of Education. Internet searches are helpful, and sites such as finaid.org, collegeanswer.com, and the Michigan State Library website are excellent sources for information regarding how to get differentiated education grant money.
One of the best ways to research grant opportunities is to visit your regional foundation library, located at most major universities. Your local library will also have books listing grant opportunities, and you can consult with the librarian if you have any questions. These kinds of books will also be available either at your high school counselorís office or your universityís financial aid office. You can purchase these books at book stores.
