Differentiation Lesson 5 and 6

Lesson 5

Begin small. Creating a classroom where individual needs are met can start with one activity such as allowing students choices.  Choices give students a feeling of independence and ownership.  Allow students to choose:

  • Journal topics/writing topics: An example for journal prompts is 5-Minute Daily Writing by Marc Tyler Nobleman
  • Reading Books
  • Varied graphic organizers
  • Working alone or together
  • Provide students with anchor activities

Lesson 6

Gradually add more complex lessons or plans per nine weeks or semester, literature circles, or alternative assessments.
