A Character in Study

Too often we ask all students to do the exact same work despite various readiness levels. My main character Hender Wently is no different, strengths in some areas and weaknesses in others. Success is great thing in the classroom but infrequent doses lead students like Hender down the path of underachievement.

Here is a differentiated  Character Grid you can use in your classroom. It is in Word format so you can take Hender’s name out and use your own character. Instead of all students answering the same questions you give them some choice. For someone like Hender you may need to suggest forced choices by saying “One from each column.” Hender will see he is doing higher  level work and succeeding at the same time.
