J Taylor Education’s Differentiation Smart Reference Guide: Task Statements

By J Taylor Education

The Differentiation Smart Reference Guide from J Taylor Education is a comprehensive and easy-to-use resource for teachers. The concept of differentiation (tailoring the core curriculum to the unique needs of students) is key in cultivating meaningful lessons for students. Teaching with differentiation is multi-faceted. The Smart Reference Guide gives teachers 22 flip pages (in color and laminated) which progressively lead one to more advanced steps in the process of differentiation. It begins with explaining what it means to differentiate and then moves on to setting the stage.

One of the flips in the guide is titled “Depth & Complexity and Content Imperatives.” This section of the guide gives teachers an overview of all of the Icons of Depth and Complexity and Content Imperatives. Each icon is identified and defined. Curricular examples are also provided for each icon. Additionally, a number of content and grade specific examples are given. Teachers will find themselves continually referring to this reference guide as their students exceed standards throughout the school year.

The Depth and Complexity Framework is the differentiation solution, providing instructional tools that empower students to be independent thinkers and creative problem-solvers. Used in over 85,000 classrooms, the Depth & Complexity Framework creates renewed learning excitement in the classroom.
