Engaging Activities for Achievable Challenge

Thursday, August 30, 2018
Welcome to Week 3 of my Thursday Reading Series! Achievable Challenge (aka differentiated instruction, only better) takes a lot of work. In chapter 3, we read about some activities Willis has used to incorporate achievable challenge. What I love about these ideas is that there is a lot of free exploration for the students to learn and ask questions at their own pace. One thing that I really like to do is use manipulatives. For a high school classroom, I have A LOT of manipulatives. One of my favorite things is to use blank dice. This allows me to differentiate what is on the dice for different groups.

Really short post this week, but go out and try something at your student's achievable challenge level! Remember to comment in the giveaway!  I have also curated a list of my favorite manipulatives in addition to the dice (affiliate links).

What is something you are going to implement in your room because of this chapter of Learning to Love Math: Teaching Strategies That Change Student Attitudes and Get Results?
