Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your Economics lessons.
If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:
🆘 Support Struggling Students
Help students who need help understanding the concepts by completing the activity in a small group or one-to-one learning environment.
➕ Challenge Fast Finishers
Challenge your fast finishers to identify additional goods and services in books they read and make lists or t-charts showing their learning.
🛴 Scoot Activity
Place the cards around the room in numerical order and give each student a recording sheet. Assign students or pairs to a starting point card. Give students time to review the card and record their answers in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, “SCOOT!” Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point.
👋 Exit Ticket
Use these cards as a formative assessment after your lesson. Pick a random assortment of cards and project them on the board for the whole class to see. Students can record their answers on paper, sticky notes, or notebooks.
