    Hi everyone,

    I find differentiation in Language Arts to be manageable - varied spelling lists, reading groups, book levels, and the opportunity for writers to take on new conventions and methods. However, I am really having trouble conducting effective differentiation in Math. I have several levels of work booklets, and am attempting Daily 3, but just find that my low students aren't receiving enough support and my high students aren't challenged enough. Does anyone have ways of differentiating their Math lessons that really works? Or Daily 3 advice? I would love to hear from you!

    You can differentiate the content, product or process. I found open ended tasks such as -if the answer to the question is five, what might the question be? gives everyone a platform to show their understanding. Otherwise good pre-tests to establish student understanding can direct teaching.
