Course Description

Targeted Instruction provides teachers an opportunity to scaffold instructional activities to encourage deeper learning. It is about intentionally sequencing rigor levels in a variety of ways to differentiate the instruction. This course gives you the basics, while another course (102) takes you much deeper into the concept.

Targeted Instruction

Targeted instruction is used to provide students scaffolded supports to take learning deeper. These activities, with appropriate rigor, are intentionally sequenced to provide academic growth.

Connection to Practice

  • Define targeted instruction
  • Learn how to implement it in the classroom
  • Move from theory to practice as instruction is differentiated for students


  • A willingness to learn and grow.
  • A computer or phone with access to the internet.
  • No paid software required – everything you need is in the Learning Module.
