Differentiation + Choice + Math = Empowered Learners by Callie Lane

How does a teacher meet the needs of a class of academically diverse learners? In this session for Grades 1-5 educators, the presenter will highlight three strategies for effective mathematical differentiation: open questions, parallel tasks and number choice.

By the session’s end, participants will have engaged in creating differentiated tasks for their grade level. Participants will leave ready to implement new techniques to make content more engaging and inclusive for all learners.
