Differentiation, being a necessary but often timely prep all teachers face every day, does not have to be daunting! Come see one way I have livened up learning through "Digital Choice Boards" and also learn some digital tips/tricks on preventing students from deleting the templates you create for them in Google Slides at the same time. Teachers will gain access to a "Digital Vocabulary Choice Board" template, a "Digital Content Choice Board" template, a copy of a "Best Practices/Examples/Other Ideas to Try Later" slide deck, and also have time to explore & ask questions within this session. Best of all, these resources can be easily modified to any content area and/or skill level.

Fine Arts
Limited Capacity full

Using art to get students to think creatively and problem solve, as well as show skill and techniques, is what I do every day. In this project I use birch trees to help show depth (overlapping, size, and placement) and color to set the mood. I also like to show students how to use unusual objects to create with instead of "traditional" art tools. We'll use an old gift card to make the texture on the birch trees while using tempera paint, acrylic paint, pastels, and sharpies to create the project.
