1 First, let’s chew on the KUD...

2 KUD... It’s what you will... K NOW -what Differentiation is -where you can use differentiation in your lessons U NDERSTAND –how to implement types of DI in your own classroom –how ways to differentiate are related be able to D O: - create two lesson idea’s utilizing an aspect of DI This is also known as unpacking the standard in BSSD speak!

3 Read the first two pages in your handout about ideas on differentiation... - If it’s true, what would I see in the classroom? - What would the teacher be doing? - What would the students be doing?


5 Learning Profiles Multiple Intelligences –Gardner Learning Modalities Problem Solving Strategies –Sternberg Personality Characteristics –Array Interaction

6 The Teacher… Nanci Smith … selects the knowledge, skills and essential understandings that the students are either: 1) beginning to explore, or 2) synthesizing and demonstrating mastery of. … looks at the K-U-Ds and find learning/assessment modes through which students could demonstrate their understanding. … selects jobs/occupations that are associated with the different learning styles. How to Create a MI Assignment

7 How to Create a MI Assignment, cont. Examples … Visual – Spatial: Artist, Cartoonist, Magazine layout editor Logical-Mathematical: Architect, Engineer, Mathematician Interpersonal – Counselor, Tour Guide, Teacher Musical/Rhythmic: Songwriter, Performing Artist Verbal-Linguistic: Writer, Commentator, Announcer Body-Kinesthetic: Actor, Builder Intrapersonal: Poet, Songwriter, Reflector (Journal) Naturalistic: Forest Ranger, Botanist

8 Sternberg’s Three Intelligences Analytical Practical Creative

9 Examples Across the Curriculum: Analytical Analyze the development of the character of Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. Critique the design of the experiment (just gone over in class or in a reading) showing that certain plants grew better in dim light than in bright sunlight. Judge the artistic merits of Roy Lichtenstein’s “comic-book art,” discussing its strengths as well as its weaknesses as fine art. Compare and contrast the respective natures of the American Revolution and the French Revolution, pointing out ways both in which they were similar and those in which they were different. Evaluate the validity of the following solution to a mathematical problem and discuss weaknesses in the solution, if there are any. Assess the strategy used by the winning player in the tennis match you just observed, stating what techniques she used in order to defeat her opponent. Nanci Smith

10 Examples Across the Curriculum: Practical Apply the formula for computing compound interest to a problem people are likely to face when planning for retirement. Use your knowledge of German to greet a new acquaintance in Berlin. Put into practice what you have learned from teamwork in football to making a classroom team project succeed. Implement a business plan you have written in a simulated business environment. Employ the formula for distance, rate, and time to compute a distance. Render practical a proposed design for a new building that will not work in the aesthetic context of the surrounding buildings, all of which are at least 100 years old. Apply a lesson that a literary character learned to your life. Nanci Smith

11 Examples Across the Curriculum: Creative Create an alternative ending to the short story you just read that represents a different ay things might have gone for the main characters in the story. Discover te fundamental physical principle that underlies all of the following problems, each of which dffers from the others in the “surface structure” of the problem but not in its “deep structure…” Imagine if the government of China keeps evolving over the course of the next 20 years in much the same way it has been evolving. What do you believe the government of China will be like in 20 years? Suppose that you were to design one additional instrument to be played in a symphony orchestra for future compositions. What might that instrument be like, and why? Predict changes that are likely to occur in the vocabulary or grammar of spoken Spanish in the border areas of the Rio Grande over the next 100 years as a result of continuous interactions between Spanish and English speakers. Imagine what it feels like to be a parabola, and describe yourself and your life. Suppose Huck Finn had been named Helen Finn. Nanci Smith

12 How can we address these differences in class?

14 Name:_________________________________ Period:____________ Date:__________ Partner’s Names:__________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ Due Date: Astronomy Rafts For this assignment you and your partners will choose one of the following assignments. You will work with your partners to create a story that follows the topic and format. All topics can be found in your textbook but a minimum of two other sources is required. Choose your assignments wisely and be very creative. Students will also be responsible for presenting their assignments to the class in a 3 – 8 minute presentation.

17 The Feudal System Students will Know: Names and roles of groups in the feudal class system. Understand: Roles in the feudal system were interdependent. A person’s role in the feudal system will shape his/her perspective on events. Be Able to Do: Research See events through varied perspectives Share research & perspectives with peers Grade 6 Social Studies RAFT

20 Proportional Reasoning Think-Tac-Toe Create a word problem that requires proportional reasoning. Solve the problem and explain why it requires proportional reasoning. Find a word problem from the text that requires proportional reasoning. Solve the problem and explain why it was proportional. Think of a way that you use proportional reasoning in your life. Describe the situation, explain why it is proportional and how you use it. Create a story about a proportion in the world. You can write it, act it, video tape it, or another story form. How do you recognize a proportional situation? Find a way to think about and explain proportionality. Make a list of all the proportional situations in the world today. Create a pict-o-gram, poem or anagram of how to solve proportional problems Write a list of steps for solving any proportional problem. Write a list of questions to ask yourself, from encountering a problem that may be proportional through solving it.

21 Similar Figures Menu Negotiables (Choose 1): 1.Create a book of similar figure applications and problems. This must include at least 10 problems. They can be problems you have made up or found in books, but at least 3 must be application problems. Solve each of the problems and include an explanation as to why your solution is correct. 2.Show at least five different applications of similar figures in the real world, and make them into math problems. Solve each of the problems and explain the role of similarity. Justify why the solutions are correct.

22 Similar Figures Menu Optionals: 1.Create an art project based on similarity. Write a cover sheet describing the use of similarity and how it affects the quality of the art. 2.Make a photo album showing the use of similar figures in the world around us. Use captions to explain the similarity in each picture. 3.Write a story about similar figures in a world without similarity. 4.Write a song about the beauty and mathematics of similar figures. 5.Create a “how-to” list or book about finding and creating similar figures.

25 Cubing Activities © ThinkDOTS Nanci Smith

26 CUBING 1.Describe it: Look at the subject closely (perhaps with your senses as well as your mind) 2. Compare it: What is it similar to? What is it different from? 3.Associate it: What does it make you think of? What comes to your mind when you think of it? Perhaps people? Places? Things? Feelings? Let your mind go and see what feelings you have for the subject. 4.Analyze it: Tell how it is made? What are it’s traits and attributes? 5.Apply it: Tell what you can do with it. How can it be used? 6.Argue for it or against it: Take a stand. Use any kind of reasoning you want – logical, silly, anywhere in between. Or you can.... Rearrange it Illustrate it Question it Satirize it Evaluate it Connect it Cartoon it Change it Solve it
