The Early Language and Literacy KnowledgeBase is an online resource supporting language and literacy development in early learners from birth through age eight. Its focus is to support parents and caregivers in helping early learners with their language and literacy development, and teachers in enhancing their instruction for early learners from pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3.
Task 1: Differentiating Instruction for All Students
Guideline: Most educators believe all students do not learn in the same way.

This task provides resources aimed at increasing early educators' awareness of differentiated instruction.
