Rigorous tasks are a function of cognitive demand and situational complexity, not just the verb used. Self-assess against our audit matrix to test your tests...

15+ Readiness Resources for Driving Student Success

15+ Readiness Resources for Driving Student Success | Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it
Students learn when ready, but not everyone reaches that point simultaneously. Discover resources to help meet the readiness needs of all your students.

In education, all students must be successful, yet for various reasons, classrooms everywhere fall short of this objective. Equally true is that teachers come to work every day with a lesson plan that is intended to foster learning by addressing Content, Process, and Product.

Teachers want students to succeed and follow lesson plans that are intended to help them achieve. So why are some learners not meeting learning expectations?

Lesson planning and instruction of content, process, and product are only half of the equation. The other part is how students respond through readiness, interests, and learning profiles. Effective differentiation and, by extension, student learning, must make the tasks and focus appealing to students. They must believe that the activities are achievable and make sense. Later blog posts will address interests and learning profiles. Readiness is our focus here.

Using Assessment to Create Student-Centered Learning

Using Assessment to Create Student-Centered Learning | Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it
There's more to assessment than test scores. By assessing students' passions, learning styles, success skills, and levels of rigor, teachers can create a student-centered classroom.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, April 26, 2015 6:18 PM

'In the infographic, Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy, we have organized types of activities that suit various levels of assessments (2001) starting with remember, understand, and apply in the first row. The second row of our infographic includes higher levels of active learning including analyze, evaluate, and create. Engaging curriculum whether face-to-face, blended, or online push student performances to these levels of learning; however, these assessments are less conducive to automated feedback systems as rubrics typically require intelligent judgment. The appropriate level of learning for any assessment should be determined by the learning objective(s).' - This is worthy of your time and reflection.

Georgia Heffernan's curator insight, April 26, 2015 7:43 PM

To enable our students to become assessment literate, teachers need to align their assessment feedback practices with the purpose of the learning. This info graphic provides an easy to use guide based on Bloom's taxonomy of developmental learning - a good reminder to be deliberate!

For the Love of Teaching: Wildly Successful Metacognition Lesson

For the Love of Teaching: Wildly Successful Metacognition Lesson | Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it
The BrainEarlier this school year I was inspired by one of my BrainSMART classes to create a lesson on metacognition. I did a post about the lesson here:metacognition lesson.  In that lesson, students twisted pipe cleaners together to represent related concepts and subjects.  Next the pipe cleaners were connected to show how information connects in the brain.  It became our class brain!  Our brain has continued to grow all year.  Students love it!
Cheryl Frose's insight:

Another variation of the class brain activity. Awesome variation for older students!

Digital storytelling is a powerful way to engage students in the writing process. Whether they are telling stories from a summer vacation or writing a persuasive essay on a community issue, technology tools can help motivate reluctant writers. Students can use their writing, audio recordings, video creations, illustrations, and images to create a digital storytelling product that demonstrates their understanding of a concept.

Response: Several Ways To Differentiate Instruction

Response: Several Ways To Differentiate Instruction | Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it
(This is the first post in a two-part series on differentiation) I posed this question last week: "What is the best advice you can give to a teacher about differentiating instruction?" I've shared my response in an Ed Week Teacher article that I've co-authored with my colleague, Katie Hull Sypnieski. It's titled "The Five By Five Approach To Differentiation Success." I'll limit my contribution here to sharing a useful link to The Best Resources On Differentiating Instruction. Experts in the fiel

Random Generator Add-On ^ Engage Their Minds ^ by Terri Eichholz

Random Generator Add-On ^ Engage Their Minds ^ by Terri Eichholz | Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it

I use a lot of Google Forms.  We are using them for a few club applications this year.  Both clubs are extremely popular, so we have to choose participants with a random drawing.

My need is simple – a tool that will automatically “draw” names from my Google Response sheet without me physically writing them down and putting them in a hat.

There are actually many tools for doing this.  Richard Byrne, for example, recently posted about how to make a random name selector with Google Sheets and Flippity.net.  Alice Keeler has got a great Random Student Chooser Template."
