Are you a teacher who has suddenly been told that you need to “differentiate” your reading, English, or language arts instruction? You are probably looking for worksheets and materials to help you comply with this unfamiliar concept, and I’ve got just the thing.
Differentiating instruction seems challenging and overwhelming, but it doesn’t really have to be. Just follow these simple steps and use the worksheets below. You too can provide differentiated instruction in a simple and effective way.
- Put students into small groups and assign them a story to read.
- Give each group one of these worksheets.
- Guide student groups as needed.
- Assign students another story and a different worksheet.
- Modify the approach as necessary and repeat.
I hope that these resources will help you differentiate your instruction and work more effectively with small groups of students.
