Session 1

Differentiation in A Story of Units


This session introduces a major theme of the two-day conference: Implementation that accommodates the needs of various subgroups without making modifications that compromise the integrity of the coherence, rigor or focus built into A Story of Units. A shared text that includes specific examples of accommodation strategies for various subgroups grounds discussion. This session provides a foundation for collecting evidence of differentiation from video footage included in the following sessions, as well as developing feedback to coach the teachers that appear in the videos.

Resources Required

  • Session 1 PowerPoint
  • “The Common Core Approach to Differentiation,” excerpted from How to Implement A Story of Units
