    2. 2. Differentiation Defined Differentiation is responsive teaching rather than one size fits all teaching (Tomlinson, 2005). To put it yet another way, it means that teachers proactively plan varied approaches to what students need to learn, how they will learn it, and/or how they will show what they have learned in order to increase the likelihood that each student will learn as much as he or she can, as efficiently as possible (Tomlinson, 2003). What does Tomlinson mean by “responsive teaching”? What does it mean to “proactively plan”? How would you define differentiation in 10 words or less?

    17. 17. What Is Tiering? Tiered assignments are parallel tasks at varied levels of complexity, depth and abstractness with various degrees of scaffolding, support, or direction. Students work on different levels of activities, all with the same essential understanding or goal in mind. Tiered assignments accommodate mainly for differences in student readiness and performance levels and allow students to work toward a goal or objective at a level that builds on their prior knowledge and encourages continued growth. – Williams, 2002

    22. 22. Tiered Graphic Organizers Below Level: How do the 2 characters compare? Write one sentence about the characters on the back. Above Level: Choose 2 characters from the book you are reading and compare them to yourself. Write a comparison paragraph to describe how the characters compare to you. On Level: Compare 2 characters from the book you are reading. Write 2 sentences about the characters on the back of the paper. English Language Learners: Compare the 2 characters from the book. You can use pictures and words.
