- Creating quality curriculum-most states utilize common core standards that set a high standards for what students are expected to learn
- Respectful tasks- assign meaningful work to engage each student in various areas of interests.This will assists with meeting each student in their own areas of interests.
- Teaching Up- I want to challenge each student to think differently. I want to challenge each to learn something to new. It is important to teach each encourage each student to reach above what they already know.
- Flexible grouping-I will incorporate group learning and instruction into the curriculum because it allows for students to be taught in various ways.
