Differentiation and a Linky Party to go along with it!

Hello teachers and bloggers! We all know that differentiation is a key component that needs to be incorporated in lessons and that principals look for when making observations. Therefore, it is important to understand how to differentiate for the needs of various students. Methods of differentiation may include graphic organizers, visual and verbal cues, leveled texts, scaffolding instruction, incorporating the multiple intelligences,  giving students smaller tasks or chunking the assignment, giving them extended time, and much more. Although differentiation can be a challenge, luckily the internet provides us with some assistance and useful resources. I wanted to give you a link to my college professor's blog "Teaching with Purpose". This site has so many great links, resources, templates, tips, and so much more for differentiation, lesson planning, assessments, and so on. It is not a blog, and Dr. Carr created this site purely because she is passionate about education and wanted to give teachers some great resources.

    plus boxes to show the videos. In a quote in DJ AM interview on DJ Hero
    DJ AM said "A DJ is the song selector, A DJ controls the mood of the party, and decides when you're going to scream or when you're going to get sexy" (DJ Hero,
    2009). A typical DJ setup currently consists two sound sources for instance two turntables
    along with a mixer.
