Students come in all shapes and sizes. They also have different abilities. A person who is more “left-brained” is usually good at math, and other concrete areas of study. A student who is more “right-brained” is usually better at art and creativity. Some students are “both brained” and excel in both areas. To help my students, reach their potential and feel most successful in this class, it is important to recognize that the work the are assigned is not always going to be at the same level (especially when in a differentiated classroom).
This chapter preview form gives input on what level homework and assessments (tests, quizzes, and projects) fit each student best for this chapter. There are three levels of difficulty, A, B, and C. Level C is the most challenging, and B is in the middle.
At the start of each chapter, students fill out a new Chapter Preview Leveling sheet in which they get to share with me their level preference.
This worksheet assumes that your book has "preview problems" at the start of each chapter. McDougall-Littell Pre-Algebra does. If your book does not, you can probably take a few problems from the chapter test or examples from different sections of the book to use in place of chapter preview problems.
