Leon County Teachers' Lessons
Middle & High School Grades
In a differentiated classroom, a teacher must know his/her students through both formal and informal assessment prior to presenting a new concept or unit of study.  Therefore these lessons and units are merely guides for teachers.  Through ongoing assessment, teachers will need to appropriately modify activities to meet their students' needs. Teachers will also need to modify rubrics and grading scales according to their students.
