    I enjoyed this presentation. She provided many good ideas that I can use in my classroom this year that will help with differentiation. She has made me understand the real meaning of differentiation and how to approach it.

  4. Roxanne – PFLUGERVILLE ISD (verified owner)

    Good ideas for differentiation. The course just needs to be adjusted to meet Covid-safety protocols. For example, having bins of activities for kids to work on doesn’t prevent the spread of germs.

    very informative.

  16. Judi – DRISCOLL ISD (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed this course. I liked that differentiation is not ALWAYS about content. Sometimes I feel in math that they all need the same content so differentiating it is more difficult. But if I can differentiate environment and with centers, posters, etc. this makes it seem more doable.
