J Taylor Education’s Differentiation Smart Reference Guide: Using Icons of Depth and Complexity and Content Imperatives

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.

One of the flips in the guide is titled “Using Icons of Depth & Complexity and Content Imperatives.” This section of the guide gives teachers specific examples of how to use the Depth and Complexity Icons in a meaningful way in the classroom. Using the Icons to differentiate is both engaging and motivating for students. It makes teaching a creative and collaborative process. Teachers will find themselves continually referring to this reference guide as their students exceed standards throughout the school year.
