Powerful Differentiation Tools

Support all your learners with Scope's many differentiation tools—from leveled-texts to audio read-alouds and lots more. Watch this video for a quick overview of these tools, and scroll down to learn more.

Use 9 Differentiation Tools:
1. Leveled Texts

A lower-Lexile version of the Narrative Nonfiction feature is available online, as is a lower-level version of the Debate/Scavenger Hunt. This version of the debate does not require students to identify the counterargument and rebuttal.

2. Scaffolded Skill-Building Activities

Many of Scope’s activities come on two levels: one with more scaffolding and one with less.

3. Audio Read-Alouds

There are two audio tools: (1) Text-to-Speech, which highlights each word on-screen as it is read—ideal for striving readers and multilingual learners, and (2) authors read their stories to your students—ideal for modeling fluency and expression.

4. Spanish-Language Version

Each narrative nonfiction feature is available in Spanish.

6. Differentiated Performance Tasks

In addition to the writing prompt at the end of each story, we also provide four other performance task ideas, which you can find at the end of each lesson plan.

7. Extensions and Enrichment

Our curated collection of resources on the Scope Ideabook —primary documents, videos, infographics, and other digital gems—are teacher faves for enrichment and extensions.

8. Background Builders

Background Builder slideshows build knowledge and context around a story or article's setting, as well as introduce ideas and terms students will encounter while reading.

9. Story Talks

For students who need additional comprehension support, share the "Story Talk" for a preview of the story's main characters and central conflict.
