    • Differentiated Instruction Intro Starting Place for Differentiation  “Differentiation is making sure that the right students get the right learning tasks at the right time. Once you have a sense of what each student holds as ‘given’ or ‘known’ and what he or she needs in order to learn, differentiation is no longer an option; it is an obvious response.” Assessment as Learning: Using Classroom Assessment to Maximize Student Learning Lorna M.

    • Differentiated Instruction Intro Think Dots • Provides up to six tasks to complete for learning skills and/or concepts (e.g. fractions, plot analysis) • Each task is progressively more difficult and connected to the learning objective. • Students are grouped by readiness, interest, and/or learning profile. profile • Students randomly pick (use a die) or choose a specific number of tasks to complete out of those provided (e.g. 3 of 6, 4 of 6, 6 of 6). • Teacher might assigned some of the tasks as mandatory, and some as optional. Defining Fractions • Learning Objective: Understand the parts and function of fractions. • Evidence/Assessment: Exit Card with 1-4 fraction problems to solve solve. • Set up activity: Students have done some work with fractions.

Everyone in the neighborhood calls her Red Riding Hood, or Red for short. One morning, Red asked her mother if she could visit her grandmother grandmother. Because of her arthritis, granny didn’t do much text messaging. "That's a good idea," her mother said. Red dressed in her favorite color and kissed her mother goodbye. “Go straight to Grandma's house," her mother cautioned. "Don't dawdle along the way and no talking to strange boys! Michigan Ave can be dangerous." d " “Mother," Red blushed. John McCarthy:jmccarthyeds@gmail.com, http://wb4all.blogspot.com 9
    • Differentiated Instruction Intro But when Red biked along Michigan Ave she noticed some lovely outfits and cell phone accessories in store front windows. She forgot her promise. She bought red sandals and a rouge phone face plate, listened to music on her iPod and drank a Cola. Red was enjoying herself so much, that she didn't notice someone approaching behind her... "What’s up?" a wolf purred beside her. "I'm seeing my Granny who lives on Hemlock, between Hemlock Payne and Barrie, near Ford Woods Park," Little Red Riding Hood replied, “The red house.” Realizing the time, “Oh, I’m late.” She excused herself, and biked fast to , Grandma's house. The wolf took a cab... John McCarthy:jmccarthyeds@gmail.com, http://wb4all.blogspot.com 10
    • Differentiated Instruction Intro The wolf arrived at Grandma's and knocked lightly at the door. t th d "Oh thank goodness dear! Come in, come in! There’s an e-Alert of a suspicious looking wolf. I was so worried," said Grandma thinking the knock came from her granddaughter. The wolf entered the house. Poor Granny didn’t have time to say another word, before the wolf gobbled her up! The wolf let out a satisfied burp. He poked through Granny's closet for a nightgown that he liked. He added a frilly sleeping mask, and dabbed some of Granny's perfume behind his pointy ears. A few minutes later, Red knocked on the door. The wolf jumped into bed and p j p pulled the covers over his nose. "Who is it?" he called in a cackly voice. "It's me, Red.” “Yo, ahem, come in, my dear," croaked the wolf. "Granny! You sound so weird,” Red said. "Oh, just a touch of cold," said the wolf adding a cough. John McCarthy:jmccarthyeds@gmail.com, http://wb4all.blogspot.com 11
    • Differentiated Instruction Intro "But Granny! What big ears you have," said Red as she edged closer to the bed. "The better to hear you, my dear." "But Granny! What big eyes you have." "The better to see you with, my dear." "But Granny! What big dentures you have," said Red her voice quivering. "The better to eat you." The wolf leapt out of the bed and chased her. Almost too late, Red realized that this person was not her Grandmother, but a hungry wolf. She ran through the house, shouting, "Help! Wolf!" as loudly as she could, while speed dialing 911 on her cell. A neighbor who was tending her garden heard Red’s cry and raced t th h d d to the house as f t as she could. fast h ld A fan of the TV shows Cops and Greys Anatomy, the neighbor tackled the wolf and performed the Hiemlich Maneuver forcing him to spit out poor Granny who was now in desperate need of a towel and a shower. "Oh Granny!" sobbed Red, "I'll never talk to strange wolves again." "There, there, child. You've learned an important lesson. i t tl The neighbor knocked out the wolf and drove him to the police precinct where he wouldn't bother people any longer. Red and Granny ate lunch and shopped at several malls. They had a long chat. John McCarthy:jmccarthyeds@gmail.com, http://wb4all.blogspot.com 12
