      Universal Design for Learning. It's an amazing framework to design curriculum to meet the needs of all learners. The best place to start is by reading the Guidelines. They are a collection of strategies, which if used with students, give all of them access to rigorous curriculum. You can learn more about UDL here:

        Kids are a blank hard-disk or a blank DVD disc or blank pen-drive.

        You can write anything you want to to write in that

        each kid have ability to do things by own self.
        they have more solution for current problems

        let them give direction
        give them scope to think

        once they find the way
        they start reading
        they start finding solutions

        Be a consultant rather then dictator

        Make a list of social problems facing by your country and society.
        find out NGOs working on that

        Let them explain meaning of opportunity.

        so many developing country facing learning English
        let them know that their native language is English
        In that way they may realize the value of a language.

        Use this kind of examples and finding reason to why do they have to learn what they learn.

          I think the key to being able to differentiate really well is to assess, assess, assess!

            You can use this template for differentiation. When you look at it, you will immediately see its value as have hundreds of people who have already downloaded it from TeachersPayTeachers. Oh, it is free there and my students do very well using it. Enjoy!
