One way to differentiate is to ask students focused questions throughout your teaching day. J Taylor Education’s, Q3 Cards (Quick, Quality Questioning Cards) are a valuable tool because they help raise student oral language skills while simultaneously providing differentiation. The cards will help you ask higher-level thinking questions that tie directly to the Depth & Complexity Icons. The 3”x 5” Depth and Complexity Icon question cards are small and easy to use (students can even use the cards themselves). These question stem cards are helpful for hooking students’ interest at the start of a lesson, prompting discussion within a lesson, and even for checking for understanding at the conclusion of a lesson.
