WHAT'S TRENDING: To Engage ALL...

#7 Differentiated Instruction: D.I. Newsletter

What's Trending.... Engaging students who are above grade level, on grade level, and below grade level.

This issue will spotlight over 225 varying digital tools, apps, web-sites and games that are showing popularity by students and teachers in and around our country. At a past CCRS Gifted Task Force meeting, we discussed the need for a list of digital resources categorized by subject, product types, and tool types that would help teachers to "differentiate instruction". This list needed a quick link and short definition for teachers to peruse and quickly determine which digital tool he or she might use to meet this year's students where they are and to help them to show growth and "move to a higher level".
