The Rules

  1. Keep it simple
  2. It’s all about choice
  3. it’s okay to relinquish control every once in a while
  4. The more you do it, the easier it will be
  5. You define the parameters, they get to show you their style

My favourites


  1. -- lays out some good thoughts on differentiation. Gives lots of generalised ideas that can apply to much of what we do.
  2. -- a blog post that hits a lot of what I think is important. Could be a great starting place!
  3. -- great source of links to sample activities and ways to differentiate exit activities
  4. -- sample lessons from many areas (where I got my idea for the student choice)

Remember, this can be fun for you too!
