  Case: Differentiated Instruction
While walking to classrooms, you visit a 3rd grade reading classroom. In this class, 10 of the 25 students are English learners. The teacher, Mrs. Beckham, is teaching a lesson with the following objective: Students will compare and contrast a fiction and nonfiction story. What are the different ways Mrs. Beckham could have her students use language to achieve this content objective?

Some possible solutions for the ELL learners is to allow them to complete the assignment in their native language, complete the assignemnt through illustrations, or to complete the assignment with the assistance of a more advanced ELL in the classroom. You could also find fiction and nonfiction books for them to read that reflect their culture. Providing meaning for the task could increase student success.
