November Differentiation

To help students prepare for the final exam, I am offering review practice quizzes as a review option in addition to the review module under content. Students have unlimited opportunities to practice essential topics that will be covered on the final. I'm hoping many will take advantage of this more interactive review opportunity.

October Discussion Differentiation

In October, I focused on ways to differentiate the discussion board. I pinned authentic Roman passages about the topic for students to investigate what the Romans themselves had to say about Roman slavery. I also pinned a Khan academy video about a famous mosaic depiction of Alexander the Great. Both resources challenged common thoughts/myths about the subjects.
