  • 4th Grade MathThis lesson is tiered in product according to readiness.Tier I: Basic Learners• Pairs of students are given a set of “real-number” cards and a blank Venn diagram which has three overlapping circles labeled as follows: numbers greater then 1½, numbers less than 3.5, and numbers between 0 and 15. Students write each number in the appropriate circle.Tier II: Grade Level Learners• Pairs of students are given a set of “real-number” cards and a blank Venn diagram which has three overlapping circles which are not labeled. Students must sort their cards and decide on labels for each of the circles. Then students write each number in the appropriate circle.Tier III: Advanced Learners• Pairs of students are given a set of “real-number” cards and a blank number line. Students must sort their cards and decide where to place each on the number line. Students complete the lesson by writing each number on the number line. http://ideanet.doe.state.in.us/exceptional/gt/tiered_curriculum/welcome.html

  • What Can Be Tiered?• Assignments • Experiments• Activities • Materials• Homework • Assessments• Learning Centers • Writing Prompts
  • Management Tips The number of tiers will depend on the range in the classroom. Form tiers based on assessment of your students’ abilities to handle the material. Students are re-grouped the next time you use tiering as a strategy. Match the tasks degree of difficulty and its pacing to student readiness.
  • Tiering by Interest Look at student characteristics other than ability level. Teachers give all students choices of content, process, or product that are at approximately the same ability level. These tiers are similar to those in a layer cake—all the same size.
  • Group Sizes May Vary The number of groups per tier will vary. The number of students per tier will vary. Form groups based on the readiness needs of individual students.  Tier One may have two groups of three students, Tier Two five groups of four students, and Tier Three may have one group of two students.
  • Managing GroupsThink about how to give directions todifferent groups
  • Quick Tip for Forming Groups• Color Swish = Readiness Level (Blue, Red, Green, Purple)• Letter = Learning Style (A, B, C, D)• Number = Random Assignment or Specific Tasks (1, 2, 3, 4) B 2Modified for Specialists
  • Minimum RequirementsBuild a complex machine which is made up of at least two simple machinesand can move a roll of pennies 3 feet.
  • All thinking begins with wonder. - Socrates
  • “Our job is not to make upanybody’s mind, but to open mindsand to make the agony of decision- making so intense you can escape only by thinking.” -Fred Friendly Broadcaster
