Our Tuesda, January 26th department meeting has two important agenda topics.  1)  Meeting the Science needs of all our students through differentiation and 2)  Continued focus on technology.  With this in mind, please put on your thinking caps and consider if/how you might contribute to our department meeting topics.  Is there a paticular successful differentiation strategy (MAX, Strategies that Work, Webquest, Lexile score articles) you are using that you could share with us?  And what about differentiation through Technology?  (Leveled Gizmo, Moodle, Renzulli learning, etc)  Volunteers to share out successful ideas are needed!!  Can you help?
