Differentiation made easy!
This resource provides differentiated practicals and quizzes for the FREE solar cell lesson.
The higher level practical develops students investigative and team working skills; their report writing skills and prepares them for the world of work.
These differentiated resources not only saves teachers time but provides Professional Development for newer teachers with ideas and strategies to help them improve their teaching skills.
A strategy to stretch the more able students is a resource which aims to encourage independent research skills. There is a blank template and teacher guidance
Another approach is ‘If this is the answer - what is the question (WITQ) in a word and visual form. The resource consists of a PowerPoint slide with a series of ‘answers’ relating to Solar Energy. Students are asked to create questions that would give these answers. The technique develops thinking skills as there are NO RIGHT QUESTIONS.
The visual example is particularly appealing to students with dyslexia to students with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and those with reading difficulties; lower ability students and a range of Special Educational Needs (especially if you allow them to speak their answer – not write it! Try using a digital recorder or voice to text for example);
The blank template provided allow teachers to design their own resources.
Word clouds appeal to a students’ creativity. The simple worksheet explains to students (and possibly their teachers) how to make a creative word cloud using text relevant to a lesson or series of lessons.
It can be used as a differentiated activity for a whole range of students. More able can import text from an essay, a SOW, a curriculum document.
Can also be used on display boards or in folders or exercise books…
