Innovative differentiation strategies
Group THREE. 5 students who answered most, including the most difficult, of the pre-assessment questions correctly
Activity 2. Students will be given three short stories in the form of a puzzle. Each Student will have paragraphs of the different stories. They need to put them in the correct order.
Assessment: Students will have to complete the task to apply their skills. I will give each student a quiz about one of the stories which they will have to complete individually. Here the quiz involves the student being able to ask questions as well as answer them.

Activity 1. Students will have to draw a mind map of the story they just watched using precut questions and pictures. For example, they must connect the "who" question with the pictures of the mother and the daughter.
Assessment: Students will end this activity with a 1min. individual quiz on answering "w" questions properly. Students should self-assess using a quick and simple assessment sheet. I will check their work and their sheets and tick the skills/knowledge mastered.

Group TWO. 12 students who have some knowledge about the topic as shown in their score, but need to develop higher order thinking skills
Activity 1. Students will be given a book version of the story. In pairs, I will give them the task to answer "who", "when", "where". Students will have to decide how to answer the question. The rule is that they must be sure of their answer. Only if they get everything right will they win a prize. We will play a quick game of 4corners so that I can assess students individual progress.

Activity 2. Each student will be presented with one card from a 3card series cause consequence picture cards. each student must find the other two students to complete the cause-consequence event. In groups, they must use the examples I presented on the board to answer "how", "why" and "what" questions about their sequence. after discussion students return to their seats and individually write in their own words an answer to each question and submit their questionnaire.

Group ONE. 5 students who appear to have limited knowledge about the topic, of which 3 are struggling with language and are at different reading levels and 2 students who have little to no comprehension of the the topic and need to be tested further for special needs
Activity 1. Review basic sentence structure (S+V+C) and introduce the "who" question and answer. Use word cards for students to build sentences and practice reading. I will give the students a quick quiz in which they must match questions with answers.

Activity 2. Introduce the "where" question. Use pictures and flashcards to review locations. I will create a small quiz to check their understanding of the "where" questions using "who" questions as a control.
