9 Powerful Differentiation Tools

By The Editors of Scope
December 11, 2019

Support all your learners with Scope's many differentiation tools—from leveled-texts to audio read-alouds and lots more. Try these resources out in your classroom today.

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.

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

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

Each narrative nonfiction feature is available in Spanish.

In the vocabulary slideshow, words are pronounced, defined, and accompanied by a photograph or video clip. Each issue comes with at least one vocabulary slideshow.

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.

Our curated collection of resources on the Scope Ideabook (which you’re on right now!)—primary documents, videos, infographics, and other digital gems—are teacher faves for enrichment and extensions.

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.

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