This resource presents proven strategies for differentiation (flexible grouping, choice boards, tiered assignments, and more) and a dozen projects that model the strategies. All projects are aligned with content standards and can be easily adapted for English/language arts, math, social studies, and science classes. Designed for use by any teacher who wants to do more than "teach to the test". Projects align with rigorous, comprehensive content standards for English/language arts, math, social sciences, and science. Digital content includes all customizable reproducible student forms plus four complete bonus projects.
