Differentiation for the Middle School Student can be Educational and Fun!!!

Prepare to enter a session in which you will leave with an engaging, differentiated social studies curriculum of strategies and units of study that an educator may readily use upon your return to school. Imagine quick writes to research papers, art activities, group collaboration; and role-playing. Units of study include "Women in Ancient Civilizations", "Trade in Ancient Civilizations"; "Comparison of Ancient and Modern Houses". (You may also bring a chromebook or laptop.)

This activity can work as a stand-alone assignment, or a springboard for project-based learning.
