What is your advice about? Differentiation Quick Wins
1: Allow students to choose how they present their work. More traditional through different forms of writing, or more adventurous formats: debate, artwork, stop animations etc.
2: Group students by using a pack of playing cards. Issue a playing card to each student and this will dictate which group they work in (by suit or by number of the card).
3: Students can express their ideas as a meme; offer a choice of images & catchphrases, or they can create their own. Variable levels of challenge!
4: Create help envelopes or cards to provide additional information, mark schemes, or exemplar work for students to use if they get stuck rather than just asking you.
5: Get students to explain their thoughts, argument or answer as an equation. Differentiate to suit; they can use basic functions (+, -) or more complicated (*, / etc.).
