Depth and Complexity Mini Student Icon Cards are the quintessential tool for differentiation. Depth & Complexity Icons are the visual prompts designed to help students go beyond surface level understanding of a concept while enhancing their ability to think critically. These cards are available from J Taylor Education as a complete set (12 in all). The front of each card is the brightly colored icon with its name clearly showing. The reverse of each card contains a few student-friendly definitions/synonyms with 2-3 task starter questions related to the icon pictured. The final card in the set shows all 11 of the dimensions together.
The Language of the Discipline Icon is one of eight icons focusing on depth. It requires students to understand and utilize the vocabulary related to a particular discipline of study. It can include abbreviations, figures of speech, phrases, signs/symbols.
