This week I had the opportunity to provide a “Make and Take” workshop on differentiated instruction to teachers in Colby, Kansas. I shared with them the idea of a Focus Tool – a simple tactile and visual tool for helping students focus on aspects of text. I have used them with students primarily for editing written work (see photo to the left.) These creative teachers took my idea and ran with it, developing several variations that work in other content areas. See photos of some of their ideas below!
