Differentiation in Social Studies Classrooms

Hi all…

Part of the new process of instruction is evaluating students through formative assessments on a daily basis.  We all know the term “differentiated instruction”, but having a few key strategies that work in any content area can help level, or differentiate,  learning for all students in the classroom.  Formative assessments provide data, and that data can be used to identify appropriate levels of activities, tasks or assessments in class.  I’ve attached both a powerpoint summary that focuses on five methods of differentiated instruction, as well as a one-page summary sheet.   Feel free to use as you wish.  A few teachers have used the choices boards strategy with great success already.
