Building Background Knowledge Whether you want to differentiate or just learn more about building prior knowledge, Jill Spencer’s book, Ten Differentiation Strategies for Building Prior Knowledge, is a helpful quick read, says reviewer Lucille Schauer.

By Barbara Blackburn. Prior to teaching your lesson, it’s important to gauge where students are in their knowledge of the topic. We are going to look at eight simple strategies you can use to assess students before you design and carry out your lesson plan.

Differentiated instruction is based on the premise that instructional approaches should vary and be adapted in relation to individual and diverse students. This brief looks at how differentiation strategies applied to reading can be designed to help students learn a range of skills including, phonics, comprehension, fluency, word prediction, and story prediction.

Here are seven key strategies that my co-author Debbie Zacarian and I believe should be used by classroom and subject area teachers to differentiate content area information for beginning level English learners (ELs). Provide information that the beginning EL can understand.

Language is not “soaked up.” A beginning level English learner must understand the [ ]. Make math learning fun and effective with Prodigy Math Game. Free for students, parents and educators. Sign up today. Prior knowledge is one of the most influential factors in learning (Ausubel,cited in (Hattie and Yates, ), p.

).Whilst most teachers are aware that new learning refines prior knowledge and adds complexity to current understanding, a science of learning perspective positions prior knowledge as central to organising and reassembling new information in order to make it meaningful.

Doing so allows students to skip content they know or to proceed quickly through content. This strategy targets students’ readiness levels and it can be applied to any subject and at any grade level. Compacting the curriculum involves three steps: Step 1: Assess student knowledge. Prior to the lesson or unit, the teacher assesses the student.

Looking for tips to achieve differentiated reading instruction in K-3. You’re in the right place. (This post contains affiliate links.) Differentiation.

It’s the big buzz word these days, isn’t it. But what does it really mean. Simply put, differentiation is tailoring your instruction to meet the needs of individual learners. According to Carol Ann Tomlinson, “Differentiating. and build on students' prior knowledge of words; and (3) allow students to understand recurring patterns in words (e.g., rhyming words, number of syllables, etc.).

Tamiko Hiroshi's fourth graders were studying a science unit on recycling. She had introduced a variety of books to the class, and in the third day of her unit she. By rethinking the role of read alouds, you can discover that they can help you set the stage for differentiation in three powerful ways: They help all students enlarge their prior knowledge.

They ensure that all students learn to apply reading strategies and explore issues and themes. Here are ten (10) effective tips and strategies that teachers can share with students to improve their comprehension of a text. These are strategies for all students.

If the students have dyslexia or other special learning requirements, they may need additional strategies. • build students' prior knowledge. • pre-teach vocabulary. • show students how to self-monitor and pinpoint what they do and don't understand.

• teach students fix-up strategies, such as reread, reread and retell, and close read. It's difficult for those who have to minute class periods to embrace teaching reading. Listening to all responses and charting them out for everyone to see helps me build prior knowledge when I don’t have much.” When we know what students already understand about an upcoming lesson, we can teach more rigorously and effectively.

These three strategies are helpful tools to gauge student’s knowledge. "K-W-L charts are graphic organizers that help students organize information before, during and after a unit or a lesson.

They can be used to engage students in a new topic, activate prior knowledge, share unit objectives, and monitor learning" (K-W-L Charts - Assessing What. Differentiation is more than a strategy or series of strategies – it's a way of thinking about teaching and learning.

r growth in differentiation is not so much about introducing tiered lessons, independent study alternative forms of assessment – or even moving to multi-text adoption. Suzy Pepper Rollins is the author of the new book, Teaching Vulnerable Learners (WW Norton), reviewed here by Laura Von Staden.

She is also the founder of Math in the Fast Lane, a national consultant/speaker, and can be reached at. Suzy was the Remedial Education Coordinator for Cobb County (GA) Schools in metro Atlanta from and is also the author of two books.

By Jen Cirillo In education, differentiation is discussed as a promising practice to support student learning, build on prior knowledge and experiences, and connect students to each other and their environments. Ideally, we provide regular opportunities for students to engage in a variety of ways with both content and each other.

Practically, we allow for [ ].Differentiation can be implemented in a sustainable way by using evidence-based teaching to cover the same curriculum content with all students, but tailoring some of the learning activities to take account of students’ abilities, prior knowledge and basic skills, and then varying the degree of support given to individual students.That background knowledge can help us better process new information and build upon what we already know.

Before reading, I teach my kids to activate prior knowledge by making a list about what they already know about a topic, creating a KWL chart (download a KWL chart here), doing a turn and talk, brainstorming, or simply taking a moment to.
