The Reading Lady is the website of Laura Krum, a NYC nationally board certified teacher. She has some really great materials, including a very informative article on Differentiated Instruction. The article highlights 4 good examples of how to differentiate content in the classroom:
- Using reading material at varying readability levels; putting text materials on tape.
- Using spelling or vocabulary lists at readiness levels of students.
- Presenting ideas through both auditory and visual means; Using reading buddies
- Meeting with small groups to re-teach an idea or skill for struggling learners, or to extend the thinking or skills of advanced learners.
