Invite students to take a more sophisticated look at what you are studying with the Content Imperative Magnets. Students will love moving these magnets around on the whiteboard as you differentiate during lessons. You can use the magnet in specific ways: as part of a frame drawn on the whiteboard or as a game. It is fun to try and see how many Content Imperatives you can connect to what you are studying! They work very well when paired with Depth and Complexity Icons as well. Placing the magnets on the whiteboard is a great visual for students as they delve deeper into the curriculum.
The Parallel Magnet is one of the Content Imperative Magnets included in the set. When students use the Parallel magnet they are analyzing the similarities (and differences) between two topics or areas of study. Magnets can be purchased from J Taylor Education as a set of 5. These 4” x 6” sturdy magnets are light enough to easily slide on your whiteboard, and strong enough to hold up papers. Combine each Content Imperative Icon with Depth & Complexity Icons for an even bigger boost to your ability to differentiate.
