School of Education and Human Services
M.S. in Education, Gifted Education
No two students enter a classroom with identical abilities, experiences, and needs. Learning styles, language proficiencies, background knowledge, readiness to learn and many other factors vary from student to student. Differentiated instruction is an instructional theory that will allow you as a teacher to plan and deliver instruction taking all of this into account. Earning a master’s degree from Canisius in differentiated instruction will prepare you to meet every learner’s needs. Our program pairs academic research with practical experience. You’ll design and run a camp called Canisius for Kids. It’s just one of the many ways we help you put your learning into action – so you graduate experienced in the art of teaching.
