Reflection: Advanced Students In a Heartbeat! Connecting Informational Text to Multistep Word Problems - Section 2: The Human Heart: Using informational text and solving word problems


I think that iTunes U is a great tool for differentiation and I saw it really take off with this lesson. Students were able to work quite independently which freed me up to coach students. There was not a moment that students weren't engaged in the reading and note taking. This is the first time I have developed an iTunes U for math and could see how this met needs of my students exactly how I had hoped.
