Differentiated Instruction

Teachers and tutors can save time with differentiated instruction as well as activities that grow in complexity as the grade levels progress. The unit provides academic consistency and practice in real‑world problem-solving for special education students. Activities involve recreation and life skills to guide students in developing self‑advocacy and independence. And the unit’s material can be accessed on any device, so it’s perfect for whole-group, small-group, or 1:1 instruction.
