As a teacher in a school district that is trying to implement differentiated instruction in all classrooms, I find information like very helpful in understanding how the classroom works in that kind of environment.  Are there other "tip sheets" like this available?  Thanks!

And I forgot about this 

Implementing DI in Your School (pdf) (presentation)'OrganizationPage'&OrganizationID='14708' or go to and scroll down to Staff Resources on the bottom left, click on Differentiated Instruction

Thanks for the help!

I differeniate with a mixture of Blooms and Webb's depth of knowledge.

My MUST (I can statement) is a lower level knowledge/skill based on the standard.

My SHOULD is the benchmark with the depth of complexity the standard asks for..

My COULD is a Blooms/Webb level higher.

This is a cheat sheet I use to help me plan.  The level of Blooms I use will decide how my assessment will be different for each group as well.

I used to differentiate in England based on the level before and next level...but I noticed that the students seems to benefit from a deeper look at some of the benchmarks I teach. 

Thanks. I love your I Can statements too.

Catch up or recovery?

I've been intrigued by the language of "catch up" which has come from government ministers and even the Children's Commissioner. The idea that lockdown has resulted in lost learning and a widening of the gap can't be disputed but it is the solutions put forward by government which has revealed the reductive nature of the government's attitude to learning and to young people. To reduce education and learning to an accumulation of facts devoid from any contextual influence is just simply naive.…See More
