This week, between Monday and Thursday, students are expected to post a response to the Essential Question for the week. Students then interact with others by making postings to their blogs and interacting in twitter. On Sunday, students are expected to post a reflection on their blog of the learning that they have encountered during the week. Blogging credit will not be given unless separate postings are made: one early in the week to outline initial understanding of the information encountered, and one reflecting after reading and commenting on others’ blog postings on Sunday. 

This week, in order to answer the essential question, create an infographic indicating the important elements of differentiation. Post this image/infographic on your blog, and create a blog entry explaining the infographic that you created and responding to the essential question.

Use the Check your Post resource to check your citation and ensure that you have properly attributed any resources you may have used.
