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.
I hope that these resources will help you differentiate your instruction and work more effectively with small groups of students.

I’ve been teaching for twenty years but only back in the English classroom this year (at a new school) trying to teach myself to navigate the world of Common Core. I have developed a number of stress-related health issues all stemming from the sleepless nights I’ve had to endure trying to develop Common Core aligned lessons to meet my students’ needs to prepare for the high-stakes testing this spring. The pressure has been relentless. What a God-send you are! Your lessons are well-designed, rigorous, and varied. I think you may have extended my lifespan this school year! Thank you, sir.
Mr. Morton/ January 19, 2016
I’m so happy to hear it. I’m developing new material. I hope that I can continue to help you in your noble duty. Best wishes!

I have used this site for two years and have passed it on to my colleagues. We are, as a fellow teacher put it, “obsessed”. This is WONDERFUL and I can’t tell you enough how much this amazing resource is appreciated!
Mr. Morton/ November 10, 2015
That’s about the nicest thing that anyone has ever said to me. Thank you.

Thank you again, for not only creating this website but also for keeping it free for all.

Thanks–I teach fully sheltered ESL classes in language arts and Reading. I used these last year and look forward to using them again this year, especially the figurative language sheets–they just save me the time of looking for the examples myself. Thanks again!!
