Special Case
Ms. Walker has recently had a lower level student moved into her advanced class in an effort to eliminate behavior issues with the student. However, because this is a lower level student he has difficulty keeping up with the pace of the class. He is not considered a special education student; therefore, he does not technically require any modifications. What should Ms. Walker do to ensure this student's success?

Differentiate instruction to meet the needs of that student. Teach your mini-lesson and then rotate through centers or strategy groups. Utilize the lower level student's strengths and use that to their advantage. Differentiate the instruction to either offer that student less questions or lesser challegning questions until the student becomes comfortable with the pace of the classroom. In order to not show favoritism offer different assignments in each strategy group. Then no student will think you are singling out that learner. Offer additional supports to that student, or differentiatd more simplistic vocabulary or directions, etc.

Ms. Walker MUST differentiate the instruction to meet the needs of ALL of her students. She needs to cover all of the same standards with this student but she needs to present the information in a different way to ensure his success.

Ms. Walker can work with the student one-on-one when other students are in small groups. She can also pair the student with a buddy that will help the student with assignments.

Ms. Walker could try a teaching in stations. Differentiation in this way would work to conceal the students struggles because one station particularly the one that Ms. Walker teaches, could be entirely dedicated to remediation while the other stations could focus on enrichment or new material.

While differentiation is important in the classroom, it is important that this is done with instruction as well as product. Sometimes a child maybe low in a given area but if it is presented to them in a way that is interesting to them, they will do well. Present the information on a level that interests them. There will be other students in the classroom that needs to have the information presented in the same manner to understand as well so Ms. Walker will benefit the lower level student as well as the advanced students.
