How am I trying to differentiate: I am working on figuring this out myself but here is what I am trying to do. 1. Have choice (some may create a brochure, a digital story, a power point, blog, or podcast). 2. Tier the activities (create a hierarchy of activities and give students choice from each level). 3. Provide Independent study by allowing students to choose an area of study that they are interested and have the create a presentation to share. 4. Pretest and provide different levels of reading on the topic we are studying.
