Discover resources to incorporate and implement differentiated instruction in the elementary classroom. View videos of differentiated instruction in action or choose from three different categories of materials. The "Students" portion of the site contains interest and learning style surveys, multiple intelligences checklists, and class interest profiles. Choose "Structures" to find grouping ideas, a choice board format, reading response format board, and more. "Strategies" is the most in-depth portion, with many strategies and organizers for differentiating instruction.

tag(s): differentiation (27), graphic organizers (46), guided reading (41), independent reading (97), professional development (70), reading strategies (28)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site for use throughout the year. Share with other teachers as an excellent resource of materials for differentiating instruction. This is a great site to keep handy to find some new and exciting ideas to use in your classroom. Use the interest surveys to find independent study topics for your gifted learners. Use the learning style or multiple intelligences checklist with your gifted students to identify areas of strength and need. These checklists are useful for all levels of students. Return to look at this site each year as you encounter a different class make-up. Share some of the inventories with parents of upper elementary students when they want ideas to help them prepare for tests.

Investigate the art of shadow puppetry through Shadow Light Productions. This is a commercial site featuring performances for school groups, community centers, or various events. Examples of performances with traditional stories appear in written and video format. A commercial venture on this site sells DVDS of actual performances. Begin your study of shadow puppetry at this site. Detailed plans with standards include suggested objectives, strategies, equipment, materials, and resources for audio, video, and texts. These plans answer all your questions on how to use shadow puppetry effectively in your classroom. Examples of lesson plans and student performance give ideas for language arts classes. Some of the images (although appropriate) may appear scary to younger students. So please preview before you share with your class.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): halloween (39), short stories (19)

In the Classroom

Share some of this "puppeteer fun" on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Integrate into your Language Arts classroom to discover theme, plot, characterization, or myths and legends in a new way. Science classes can investigate the use of shadow and sound. Shadow puppetry is an easy way to incorporate several multiple intelligences. Easily differentiated plans for ESL/ELL and Gifted students to capture interest and motivate success. Use as an enrichment cluster, or after-school activity. Be sure to capture all your class creations on video and share on your class web site or blog.

Create your own rubric for multimedia and other projects or search the gallery from many that already exist for all grade levels. (Also use the gallery to get great project ideas!) Search the type of rubric or project to find a related rubric. Use the buttons at the bottom to preview, edit (customize and save your own version from existing ones), or copy. Share by url or embed code in a wiki, blog, or site. Keep bookmarked rubrics in your account on the site. Create freepersonal or group accounts (for educators). Create classes, join educator groups, and more.

tag(s): assessment (63), rubrics (25)

In the Classroom

To save rubrics and modify existing ones, educators must create an account. Find great project ideas, rubric examples and criteria. Build on the expertise of others to create excellent rubrics. Consider creating categories and using the advice of students to help identify criteria that is important to the project. You might even want to create differentiated rubrics to match multiple intelligences, learning styles, or varied ability levels. With such easy adaptations, you can start alter different versions very easily.

Connect art and math using this site. The Bridges Organization was created in 1998 as an organization dedicated to promoting how Mathematics and the Arts work together. Each year they hold an annual conference in cities from North America to Europe. Members include mathematicians, artists, sculptors, dancers, computer scientists, and many more. The website contains background information on the organization, links to past conferences, and current conference information. Perhaps of most interest to classroom teachers are the links to the galleries. Contained within these are hundreds of works of art that have been featured at the conferences (try the link to the 2010 Bridges Conference for example). Click on any of the links and find pictures of their work along with a short explanation of how math is used in the piece.

tag(s): art history (55), artists (59), geometric shapes (124), tessellations (6)

In the Classroom

What a wonderful way to connect to students' multiple intelligences! After viewing examples of the artwork with your students, team up with the Art teacher in your building to have students create their own pieces of art based on math examples. Tie in writing by assigning students to write about their artwork and the math used as the basis of their art piece. Display art work with the explanations for other students to enjoy. Or take pictures of the art work and challenge students to create voice narration for the photo using a tool such as Narrable reviewed here.

Here you will find a quick and interesting learning styles quiz for your students to take. You don't need to sign in. No email address or registration is required. Once you've found your dominate style there is a description, and, best of all, tips for the best way for you to learn. Some of the learning styles also include possible career choices.

tag(s): learning styles (11), multiple intelligences (8)

In the Classroom

Have your students open a word document and save it. Then have them take the quiz, without signing up. Use the "Print Screen" feature on the computer to have the students copy their test. They can then paste it in their word document. Next have them look to see what is their most dominate style, and have them copy and paste the description for that style first, then their next dominate and so on. Not only can your students use this when trying to figure out final projects for assessments, but if they are having trouble with tests, they can look and see what might help them when it comes to study time. You can also use the results to group students or for them to select a "study buddy" before tests! Many of the styles include possible careers for students to pursue.

This website offers a cache of Learning Disability information for teachers and parents submitted by members of this "community." Articles, discussion boards, courses, intelligence tests, and links offer a full array of resources for you, for parents, or for staff development. Because content is user-submitted, there is a wide variety of information, and a few self-serving posts to "plug" a certain product. Most content is useful, easy to understand, and "agenda"- free. There are sidebar ads. You must do a quick sign-in to access all this site offers, including customizing your own webpage within this site. Sign-in does require an email address.

tag(s): learning disability (13), multiple intelligences (8)

In the Classroom

This site would be great for parents who need to understand the scope of a Learning Disability in their child. Be sure to post this site on your class website. Customize your own page within this website to share with colleagues and parents. Middle and high school students mature enough to read about their own learning disability might find this site helpful, as well.

The Multiple Intelligence Inventory would be a great "first week" activity for students to complete to learn more about their own learning styles and strengths.

This visually "plain vanilla" learning style inventory, created by an instructional designer at Penn State, is simple enough to use in a middle or high school classroom without explaining elaborate personality traits and indexes to preteens and young adults. (There is one unfortunate mention of smoking, since the inventory was designed for college students. You may want to point it out and make an active disclaimer. about not promoting smoking!). This free, simplified inventory is short enough to complete and discuss during one class period. NOTE: the results of the inventory come up in a small pop-up window. Make sure your pop-up blocker is not preventing you from seeing them. The Google and Yahoo toolbars block pop-ups! In Internet Explorer, you can temporarily turn off the blocker by RIGHT-clicking on the narrow yellow bar that appears at the top of the web page window.

tag(s): assessment (63), learning styles (11), multiple intelligences (8)

In the Classroom

Regular ed and learning support teachers from middle school up will want to share this resource with students and parents to help students find the most effective ways to study and retain knowledge. Include the link on your teacher web page (with a note about the unfortunate mention of smoking!) or plan a start-of-the year in-class time to help students get off on the right foot. Even teachers of gifted (whose students are notorious for inconsistent study methods because they have not "needed" to study) will find this resource helpful when students "hit the wall" in challenging courses. As part of a study skills unit, have students self-assess and create a single database of the class members' learning styles and subject strengths so they can find peer-tutors during study halls.

Who says the chemistry department can monopolize the periodic table? This site highlights various charts, graphic organizers, tables, and other ways to express information visually. The presentation makes the sell (or better grade). Teachers, especially secondary school, will appreciate this page to show the various ways to make their students' presentations more meaningful. Those who teach advanced reading skills and how to interpret visual data will love all the examples, as well. Hold your mouse over each square of the periodic table to view each type of visual.

tag(s): design (82), periodic table (45)

In the Classroom

Viewing this with the entire class will be more effective with the interactive whiteboard or projector. Teachers in any subject will find this site invaluable in teaching how to make strong visuals for oral or written presentations. What powerful evidence for multiple intelligences! Your visual/spatial students will LOVE this one, and others will learn to build that intelligence. Try these same strategies in YOUR PowerPoint presentations to communicate ideas visually, without being "powerpointless" at back to school night!

This is a great website for student interaction! It does require Flash to get the full effect and animation (Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.). With a click of a mouse you can be transported 500 years back in time, complete with digital images, interactive activities, maps, timelines, and more. The music that matches each section also adds to the authenticity in taking students to this time.While this site was originally for middle school students, it would work very well with 9-10th graders simply because it will hold their attention. The site includes lesson plans and ideas for language arts, art, science, social studies, and math, as well as a general introduction lesson.

tag(s): artists (59), inventors and inventions (96), renaissance (31)

In the Classroom

Even if you only have one day to spend, you can use this site to focus on inventions or provide background before you read Shakespeare or look at Renaissance art. Start by sharing the interactive timeline of six themes of the Renaissance (Start from Art Explorer) as an introduction on a projector or whiteboard, then send student groups to different areas of the site to become "experts" on different facets of the Renaissance. The varied activities provide easy ways to differentiate or address multiple intelligences. Be sure to plan a culminating day when students share their new expertise in the form of presentations, products, or plays.

Use a computer lab or laptops to help students learn more about how they learn. For many students, this could be part of a plan for how to study and be successful in the new school year. This would be a great "first week of school" activity or part of a unit on study skills. For gifted students finally "hitting the wall" and having to learn to study in high school, this self-analysis could be very helpful.

Shakespeare invented over 2,000 words and expressive phrases. In this lesson, students use drawing and pantomime to identify and analyze some of Shakespeare's phrases. They then write a story using the newly-identified words, lines, and phrases. There are 2 45-minute lesson plans that enable students to:
--identify words invented by William Shakespeare.
--interpret the meaning of words through drawing.
--identify words by interpreting drawings.
--analyze the meaning of a line or phrase.
--pantomime to communicate the meaning of a line or phrase.
--interpret pantomime to identify a line or phrase.
--write a short story using Shakespeare invented words, lines, and phrases.

The assessments are informal and not intended as diagnostic instruments. Two different learning styles self-assessments and information about different learning style traits and strategies help students learn more about how they learn.
