What does DIFFERENTIATION

look like?

+

How can this benefit my students?


Students often have difficulties with reading, writing,
reasoning, remembering, or organizing information


Opportunities to work with appropriate concepts and
technology tools and in groups of peers with a range of
backgrounds and abilities


Develop strengths and apply creativity to
material and products that interest them


Still “tests” the content just using
different products as the “output”


Content, process, product
