Differentiation and Tiering
A colored shape code is denoted to help you differentiate concepts:
• Bell ringers with a green circle cover basic ideas and understandings.
• Bell ringers with a blue square cover intermediate ideas and understandings.
• Bell ringers with a black diamond cover advanced ideas and understandings.
Each bell ringer has three questions with a "signal strength" to probe lower, mid and higher order thinking:
• Part A questions with a “low” signal strength assess whether students can remember, recall and understand facts.
• Part B questions with a “medium” signal strength asses whether students can apply, analyze or explain information.
• Part C questions with a “high” signal strength assess whether students can evaluate, judge or interpret information.
