Liberate Your Students and Increase Their Attentiveness by Giving Them Choices!
Providing a list of choices on menus, such as weighted, tic-tac-toe, and game show visual menus, gives students ownership over the projects they create in your classroom. Differentiation in the Spanish Classroom encourages teachers to use a new method of teaching to reach every student individually. Every student learns in a different style and at a different pace. Author Wade Petersen has carefully introduced differentiation and offered suggestions, ideas, and teaching materials to help you integrate differentiation in your classroom.
