Pre-Assessment Differentiation for my Physics class
Lesson: Newton's Laws
the 5 students who answered most, including the most difficult, of the pre-assessment questions correctly
Khan Academy: This website has a unit on Newton's Laws of Motion. I can create a class and add these students to complete the assignments. They will watch videos and answer questions as they watch.
They would also be assigned a Quizizz that is specific to this content to assess them.
the 12 students who have some knowledge about the topic as shown in their score, but need to develop higher order thinking skills
First I would have students complete stations to see Newton's Laws in real-life scenarios.
Newton's Laws Stations Option 1
Newton's Laws Stations Option 2
Then I would have them watch
videos and complete multiple choice and free response questions as they watch. If students score below a 70% on the video after the questions have been graded, then I will reset the video and have them watch it again.
Finally, I would have students that finish the EdPuzzle videos to complete a Quizizz that is more difficult and comprehensive than the pre-test.
Here is the Quizizz to be completed by students after EdPuzzle
the 5 students who appear to have limited knowledge about the topic
2 students who have little to no comprehension of the the topic and need to be tested further for special needs
Students will be given a "packet" that starts at a beginner's level and increases in difficulty.

We will complete this packet together as a small group so that we can discuss each question and concept.
Students will also be given Quizizz to experience practice test questions and for me to see their growth.
3 are struggling with language and are at different reading levels
To assist students struggling with language it's important that they do know the terminology. Students can use this
link to learn the vocabulary.
I will also assign EdPuzzle videos that are short and simple to explain concepts. The EdPuzzle videos would be very visual and have real-life examples/demonstrations to avoid heavy reading materials.
