This 3 credit graduate course explores a menu model for differentiation, reframing Tier I math instruction in order to meet the ongoing range of instructional needs. Learn how to manage a ‘centers’ approach to your teaching and restructuring your math block to allow for small group and individualized lessons. Embedded in the coursework will be examining lessons through the lens of the Common Core Math Standards of Practice, as well as how to utilize technology as a direct tool for math instruction in any environment (face-to-face, distance, blended).

Explorations include:
• How can I keep up with my curriculum map AND make accommodations in time for students struggling with math concepts?
• What do I do with students who consistently finish their math assignments early?
• How do I maintain a pace that matches different students’ needs?
• How can I maximize integrating technology with limited resources?
• When do I use a Tier II intervention and when do I support students in the classroom?
• How can I find time to incorporate the great games and resources that are part of my math program?
• How can I use a menu approach to support differentiated needs of learners in a distance learning or blended environment?
• How can I use menu to provide intervention in a distance learning or blended environment?
