Use Tiering for All Students Mastery!
Tiering starts with the end product in mind! What is it that you want your students to be able to do with a particular set of vocabulary or a particular grammar point? Some of your students will be lucky to learn a tricky conjunction. Some of your students will be able to take this concept a bit further, and others will be able to use this in a way that will make your head spin! No matter how far some students take the skill, there are the basic core concepts that you must teach and that all your students need to master. This is what 675+ Tiering Activities does by adjusting the degree of difficulty of a particular task to match various students' level of readiness. With over 675 Tiered Activities covering 75 topics with three levels (Basic, Proficient and Advanced), this book will address all of the skill levels within your World Language class.
