Tips for Support and Extension
If your class contains a mix of above- and below-level learners (and let’s be honest… what class doesn’t!), we have provided some differentiation tips and tricks below.
Supporting Less-Confident Students
Research tasks can be overbearing for our less-confident learners. They may not know where to start when it comes to accessing age-appropriate information that targets the topic they are researching. If this is the case, it can be very helpful to provide these learners with a few pre-selected websites to help them on their way with their research.
Challenging More-Confident Students
The resource booklet contains suggested fast-finisher activities to keep your more-confident students engaged and busy. Why not challenge your bright sparks to embark upon an independent research project using one of these extra activities as a stimulus? They could then present their work to the class once it has been completed!
