Strategy/Differentiation:

Our Co-Teaching Strategy is to have one of our teachers walking around the classroom
to gage understanding and to mediate. Another teacher will be working with the
computer, one will be giving out the instruction, and another will be writing on the board.
The student differentiation is to allow for students to create a poster or an online Prezi

the questions (formative).
Co-Teaching Strategy/Differentiation/Check for Understandinghow are you going to know if EACH
student is ready to move onto independent practice? And how are you going to differentiate if they do not
understand? Since the teacher will be walking around to check understanding they will be able to gage the
amount of understanding with the students and groups. If there is still confusion then teacher will go over a
sample worksheet. For differentiation students will be able to use the worksheet to create a poster or an
online Prezi (audio/visual).
