    Hello,
    THis was a question that was listed on an REAP.
    List and describe two (2) core teaching strategies you most utilized in your classroom.

    As to the particular teaching strategies themselves, chances are there's not just one right answer - but it would make sense, even though the question as you describe it doesn't mention this, to give some idea why you chose the strategies you chose.

    I don't think they're interested in any particular answer... any one of several will do. But they do want to see your thought process-- have you come up with an answer and defend it.

    So, yes, differentiated instruction is important. But I personally think that's such a vague term that it's become a buzzword. What exactly do you mean by that and how would you implement it? I mean, sure, it would be great to teach to each kid on his own level. But how do you implement it in a class where 22 (or in my case, 40) kids are on a variety of levels? I think the explanation here is the key--the "describe", not the "list".
