• Concept formation: presenting information and giving opportunities for students to engage with the material at their own level (inquiry-based or discovery lessons)
  • Web inquiry: open-ended enough for students to explore and complete assignment at their own level
  • Blogs: another opportunity for students to participate (outside of class) and ask questions
  • Key points on Class Websites: use class website to present key information presented in class that students need to be able to succeed and progress (almost like extra copy of classroom notes that some special needs students will need anyway) and to give extension opportunities and activities for students who want more information
  • Games and competition: in class, allowing games to engage students of all achievement levels (may or may not include technology)
  • Mnemonics and synthesis / reflection time in class: how can we present information in memorable ways and give students time to come up with their own tricks to retain information?
  • Performance-based assessment: give students structure and a lot of choice within performance-based tasks to apply their knowledge of the new material (real-life situations, debates, skits, demonstrations, creative projects, etc.)
