Working with multiple grade levels and multiple teachers, I find it difficult to help each with how to differentiate within their classroom.  Do you have a "go-to" strategy that you give to gen. ed. teachers when they come for help with differentiation?

I'm always reminded that we can differentiate content, process, or product.  Many times we can assign a project that naturally lends itself to differentiation.....students naturally can take it to different levels.  But, as long as I keep content, process, or product in mind it is easier.

If you are teaching middle and high school, I recommend Newsela . It has levels for each reading. It is a great tool.

I wish that it will also be a differentiated test. I think sometimes we differentiate in the class and then we have a new students no English the same test on their first, second and third year. It takes at least five years to learn a language. What can we do with this problem?

I've seen NewsELA mentioned in the thread above. Another great option is Tween Tribune. This is a resources provided by the Smithsonian. It is news articles (student-friendly) that can be accessed by Lexile Level. The students may all be reading the same article for content, but at different levels of complexity. This allows you to differentiate without all the students knowing that it's happening.

I teach 5th grade and my students love TweenTribune! It always has such interesting ideas/topics from a different perspective. Leads to great class discussions and blogs!

I use this resources and https://rewordify.com/ that you can add any text and change the lexile of the reading. The problem is that when we have the final test we give the students the same test as everyone else. It doesn't matter where they are.
