“Tailoring Tasks to Meet Students’ Needs,” McDuffie, Wohlhunter, Breyfogle, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, vol 16, no 9, May 2011.
Four strategies to make curriculum/lessons/instruction fit student needs. Eg. ELL & Special Education students.
1. Switch to a familiar context
2. Supplement foundational gaps
3. Incorporate overarching goals
4. Adjust for reading levels
I would recommend this article to others. It really emphasizes how little changes to how we present material to students can make big differences for their learning and understanding of the content.
