7th Grade Differentiation​ Set

Help me give my students engaging materials that make rigorous language and concepts accessible to them.

My Students

We have approximately 170 7th graders. 50% of them are low income, 18% have been identified as having a disability, and 15% are English Language Learners.

In order to meet the diverse needs of our students and make rigorous curriculum standards accessible to them, we need to differentiate our instruction.

We do this through several modes of instruction, which will be enhanced by the materials in this request: small group instruction, GLAD strategies (very visual and language intensive strategies), native language instruction and materials for ELL students, and engaging materials.

My Project

Because of the diverse populations of learners that we serve, we need to be innovative, unique, and relentless in our pursuit of appropriate materials.

The challenge that we embrace with our diverse student population is that we need to make rigorous content and language accessible to students who aren't fully proficient yet.

If we settle for lower-level material instead of differentiating to make grade-level​ content comprehensible, we will not get our students to achieve at the level expected of them in the standards.

Students will learn GLAD strategies as part of the content present in our curriculum, receive small group instruction if they need additional support, and then produce anchor charts with the markers, post easel pads and cardstock on new content that will be taught to fellow students, which will allow them to practice, reading, writing, and oracy with appropriate language supports.

Engaging materials would help greatly in our pursuit of reaching all students and expecting high levels of performance from them.
