I like your idea of taking a standard and writing different objectives for different levels. I also like the reminder to offer choices for assessments to allow all students to be successful.

Great ideas especially for working with ELL students.

This was phenomenal! This is one of the first times that I have really bought into differentiation because of the somewhat simplicity of determining levels (by those spiraling maps). And the brilliant idea of only assessing a part of the standard at a time. Not sure why I hadn't thought of that earlier, but I'm glad I have it in my toolbox going forward. My head is spinning with ideas, and I thank you so much.

Thank you for the clear and precise information on how the Common Core Standards are a spiral staircase. The NC website that show the standards along a horizontal line from k-12 is a fantastic visual. Love it!
